The first plan was to change nlist.h in libbsd. Then you come with the
changes a.out.h from the glibc. As those changes also bring some other
improvements compared to the previous version we had, I have kept them
and just upload a new eglibc including those changes. This should fix
packages using nlist.h.
It is not yet decided if there will finally be changes in libbsd.

Ok, I'll upload that one.
