Ah yes, C99 madness. I've back-ported to good old C, you can find changes
necessary by doing
	cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.rpm.org:/cvs/devel login
	(no password, just carriage return)
	cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.rpm.org:/cvs/devel get elfutils
	cd elfutils
	cvs diff -r elfutils-0_76
Ignore all the Makefile.am crap, just use the *.[ch] file diffs.

You will *still* be better off factoring elfutils code out of rpm for Yellow
Dog. I carry elfutils only because rpm needs the API and I have no other means
to access the API on Red Hat 8.0 or Red Hat 7x.

Try "make check" in elfutils, there are test cases.
