   Yah, I'm still shaking my head wondering what the hell M4 needs
   all this godaweful code for?  They're diving deep, DEEP into
   stdio for no good reason, just to make M4 processing a few nanoseconds
   fastr?  I just don't undestand it.

   In anycase, I'll get it fixed.  I'm not going to mess around too much
   though, if I have to add some inlines to our stdio.h to move things
   along I will.
