Well, we can detect a missing prototype in autoconf by looking for a
conflict.  The big danger here is that we pick up the correct prototype
by some other headers we're not including at this point, and that
prototype conflicts slightly with the one we use.  It should be a small
risk since at this point we're using the full power of our 20-year
experience of finding terminal library headers.  Hmm.
