	Yes, that's correct: I was being fooled by
	a #define artifact into disgnosing the
	wrong thing.

	The canonical way (for Sun: they reserve the
	right to have their own high priests (:-))
	is to use getconf to get the values of
	optionally LFS_LINTFLAGS

	This turns out, on 2.6 and 2.7, to 
	cflags and lintflags, and nothing for the other two.

	Sure does: helped me find the underlying problem,
	after I grep'd for stavfs64 and was amazed to
	find it wasn't called after all!
