Incidentally, my glibc defines both getdelim & getline to return ssize_t. Is it intentional that the GNULIB versions return int instead?

Actually, that was exactly the cause of the original bug! ssize_t and
int are equivalent on most 32-bit platforms, but not on 64-bit
Linux. Thus the definition of getline() clashes and does not match the
one included from stdio.h...

But what I checked in still should have fixed things. The offending prototypes now won't be included unless the functions do not exist on the system, so the fact that they have different signatures will be irrelevant.
