Hi Sam,

This apparently doesn't build:

CHK include/linux/version.h
UPD include/linux/version.h
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
HOSTCC scripts/basic/docproc
HOSTCC scripts/unifdef
/tmp/ccwcmPxS.o: In function `keywordedit':
unifdef.c:(.text+0x25c): undefined reference to `strlcpy'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [scripts/unifdef] Error 1
make: *** [headers_install] Error 2

AFAICT, strlcpy is a BSD'ism and isn't generally available to userland on
Linux (but of course the kernel has its own strlcpy implementation).
Debian solve this by including a separate strlcpy.c with the unifdef
source. See:
