   And finally there's "fix_headers" - the utility that comes with gcc
   and fixes headers so they can be used with some gcc conventions and
   extensions to C.  Combine this with our multi-standard headers
   which I suspect the designers of "fix_headers" never thought of and
   you get a pretty cool mess :-)

Which is why in gcc-2.8.0 a completely new fix_headers.irix will exist
which handles it all properly...
