Subject: GNULIB is adding -Wmissing-prototypes in config.h

This is a minor (but annoying warning spewage) gnulib addition to config.h when compiling with G++

I suggest upgrading to the current version of Gnulib. This patch:

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnulib.git/commit/?id=44f73b8deccadf3e0d668f493d7dc3babcaa3144

dated 2015 should work around your particular problem. Perhaps a
different patch might be needed for g++ 4.6, though I'd like some
confirmation of that from someone actually using old g++.

Thanks for the pointer.

Hmmm … I’m using an up-to-date git checkout of gnulib, so the problem isn’t simply an upgrade.

Copying extern-inlines.m4 into my top-level m4 “fixes” the problem (even though the timestamp
seemed to indicate that the file had already been copied).

So the root cause to my problem is/was a failed gnulib update integration somehow.

*shrug* My eyes are MUCH happier not having to squint around the annoying warning ;-). Thanks!
