The errors in linuxaudiodev are only errors because for some reason, in
-ansi -pedantic-errors mode, gcc doesn't define the 'linux' symbol. IMHO,
not worth fixing. The nismodule is 'broken' because of this:

nismaplist *
nis_maplist (void)
        nisresp_maplist *list;
        char *dom;
        CLIENT *cl, *clnt_create();

clnt_create() should be declared by the system include files. Anyone have
objections to me moving it to pyport.h, inside the '#if 0' ?
