Hi Greg,

Makes sense.

_scm.h already includes errno.h unconditionally.  It appears that it's
one of a very few headers that we always assume.  And no one has
reported this failing, so the assumption must be fine.

The include isn't needed here, because errno.h was already included
earlier on in the same file.

I think we can just delete these extra errno declarations.  They've
been there forever - or at least since rev 1.1 of _scm.h in CVS (1996)
- and I suspect they've just been left in from a time (pre-CVS) before
the #include <errno.h> was added.

Can you confirm that ripping this stanza out works for you, then we'll
go ahead with that for 1.8.5.
