I don't mean to hijack my own thread, but another error I get after
moving past the sysconf symbols is the following:

  sendfile.h:9:2: error: #error "This header not permitted by the LSB"

A quick search yielded no information on this. Does anyone know why
the header is there only to throw an error when it's tried to be used?

Additionally, past this error there's several strange complaints of
the "signedness" (a perfectly cromulent word) of arguments.
