goxel does.[1]

goxel-0.10.6/src/utils/ini.h:#define INI_HANDLER_LINENO 1

and gnutls would, too.

So imho inih upstream needs a interface that allows linking either
dynamically against system libinih or statically against the included
copy without changing the source with something equivalent to the
compile time options. The current Debian-patched version requires source
changes depending on what linkage is targeted, upstream's version of the
dynamic library just does not work when these compile time options are

[1] Which is probably why it actually uses the static copy although it
depends on libinih. (#978021)
