But gnulib has to port to C99, and C99 requires that every function be
explicitly declared, even functions that return 'int'.

Perhaps the simplest solution is to use "#ifdef emacs"?  This will
also handle the free vs. xfree discrepancy.  If you like, I can code
up a solution along those lines.  (It would save me a bit of time if
you told me Emacs's mechanism for close-on-exec.)
