Definitily yes. I did this for a couple of packages already, but there are
certainly more "to come" like postgresql.

Of course, if someone wants to be really cool, he takes a source mirror,
extracts all files and checks for usage of errno and inclusion of errno.h,
but this will not catch all and give some bogus reports. Might be useful as
a base to work from, though.
