This pulls in some extra modules that we need:

sys_stat (provides things like the S_* permissions flags which are missing under Windows)

vasprintf (asprintf implementation)




gettext (portable gettext and <libintl.h> support)

getpass (discussed previously)

  Looks fine to me, I assume you checked the LGPLv2 licence of the new
modules imported from gnulib, good to see gnulib helps on many other
portbility requirement than just the 2 initial cases,

We already pull in LGPLv3 _header_ files (in CVS right now):


and a couple of LGPLv3 C files:

  dummy.c  (but this file is literally trivial)

(However the documentation for physmem says the module is under LGPLv2+ so either the documentation is wrong or the top of the file is wrong or else I don't understand what's going on here).

Unfortunately although all the modules above are LGPLv2, I just noticed that getpass depends indirectly on realloc. Documentation for realloc says its LGPLv2+ so I didn't think it was a problem, but the top of the file says LGPLv3.

License lawyers, on your marks ...
