Why should this work? If scandir & alphasort are missing then this will
result in link-errors. If they are just un-declared, which the patch
fixes, then why aren't they being declared?
SCANDIR_MISSING should imply that scandir is missing, so a simple
declaration won't help. (Technically you need a separate
ALPHASORT_MISSING for alphasort anyway...)
Please tell us: what platform are you using? Solaris? AIX? HP?

It's getting them wrong that is living, getting them wrong and wrong and
wrong and then, on careful reconsideration, getting them wrong again.
That's how we know we're alive: we're wrong.
