Tried that. It gives an error like:
make: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/linux/drivers/char'
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -o conmakehash conmakehash.c
In file included from /usr/include/features.h:250,
/usr/include/sys/cdefs.h:161: parse error
So something isn't quite right here.

I don't know why the freeswan is including stdio.h --- that's what the
FreeS/WAN KLIPS is doing. I'm just trying to compile it. I thought it
was strange, too.
It looks like conmakehash.c is also including stdio.h --- though it wasn't
tripping over the __restrict problem like this.

That doesn't sound like it's going to help me here. I really need a
first cut of this this weekend.
