This commit is already pushed, but the use of ‘dprintf’ which I'd
never heard of until yesterday triggers a bug (in our code) on

errors.c: In function 'main':
errors.c:103:7: warning: implicit declaration of function 'dprintf'; did you mean 'vdprintf'? [-Wimplicit-function-declaration]
   if (dprintf (script_fd, "case $1 in\n"

This function was apparently standardized in POSIX.1-2008 and the
FreeBSD man page says it exists.  However:

     Applications that wish to use the dprintf() function described herein
     should either request a strict IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 ("POSIX.1")
     environment by defining the macro _POSIX_C_SOURCE to the value 200809 or
     greater, or by defining the macro _WITH_DPRINTF, prior to the inclusion
     of <stdio.h>.  For compatibility with GNU libc, defining either
     _BSD_SOURCE or _GNU_SOURCE prior to the inclusion of <stdio.h> will also
     make dprintf() available.

It was always my understanding that AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS would
define the right symbols, and indeed in <config.h> on FreeBSD we have:

/* Enable GNU extensions on systems that have them.  */
#ifndef _GNU_SOURCE
# define _GNU_SOURCE 1

The problem in fact is that we don't include <config.h> in all of the
tests uniformly.  I fixed a couple of these in my FreeBSD patch
yesterday, but we really must include <config.h> everywhere.

I'll try to make a patch in a minute.
