I've pushed a handful of small compatibility patches to GitHub[1]
which are enough to successfully compile the project.  The default
values of the new variables should make them unnoticeable to other

Are there any concerns with this type of change?  If they would be
acceptable, I can try sending the first four of those patches to the
list properly.  (I expect the last two may be tweaked as I continue
working with the port.)

I do have a concern with strings.h, though.  That file will be
included for most people who run ./configure, when it wasn't before.
Do you think it's worth making a more detailed test to see if
strcasecmp is still undefined after string.h is included, rather than
just testing for the header's existence?
