   Do you propose it only for single-source utilities (as tftpd or inetd),
   or for complex ones (as ifconfig and gwhois) as well?

Definitively the single-file ones, not entierly sure for the
multi-file ones.  I was going to play around and see if it can be done
for the multi-file utilities in some clean way and post a patch to see
what people think.

(gwhois belongs in the single-file category, all the .h files are
generated and other than that you only have whois.c, a cleaner
approach would be to generate a single .h file in one go instead of
having multiple runs, but that is for another day)
