On OpenBSD the file /usr/include/rpcsvc/ypclnt.h contains the following

struct ypall_callback {
	/* return non-0 to stop getting called */
	int (*foreach)(unsigned long, char *, int, char *, int, void *);
	char *data;		/* opaque pointer for use of callback fn */

the 'foreach' function pointer's declaration in Modules/nismodule.c is

gcc -pthread -fPIC -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall
-Wstrict-prototypes -I. -I./Include -I/usr/local/include -IInclude
-I/home/henry/py3k -c /home/henry/py3k/Modules/nismodule.c -o
/home/henry/py3k/Modules/nismodule.c: In function `nis_cat':
/home/henry/py3k/Modules/nismodule.c:208: warning: assignment from
incompatible pointer type

The attached patch fixes this very important issue :)

Does someone know whether FreeBSD or NetBSD need the same treatment?

FreeBSD does.

But NetBSD doesn't:

What about this new patch?
msg90210 - (view) Author: Henry Precheur (henry.precheur) Date: 2009-07-07 01:49
It works on OpenBSD, but I don't have any FreeBSD to test. I should be
safe to commit though, the patch is rather trivial.
