   No reason at all. It is an int.

   However, that's not the problem. What is the problem can be found in all
error.h headers; DJB has:

extern int errno;

and what is needed is:

#include <errno.h>

   Making this change in all error.h allows compilation to proceed.

good insight into this latter issue from Darl McBride and the head-shed at
