  Same here, configure.ac had

+    AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED([WITH_MACVTAP], 1, [whether macvtap support is


#define WITH_MACVTAP 1

ended up in config.h whatever the check results. Plus the test for the
feature was using

#if defined(WITH_MACVTAP)

which would turn true even with

#define WITH_MACVTAP 1

Some of the "make/make check/make syntax-check" failures happened between
patches, we try to be "make/make check" clean after each patch. The
syntax-check also raised problem with isspace (need to use c_isspace) or
po/POTFILE.in needing update.
Anyway it's all in now, but I made various changes left and right,
usually small ones though.

Okay, but if we can just cleanup the small allocations issues it's
probably better than depend on another library.

  thanks !
