I see your point.

If I do as Andrew suggests and prevent fix-decls from looking at the
*-share directories, that will prevent the arg_type conflict which
is responsible for the errors.  That leaves only the exit() warning
from standalone.c to worry about.  I can probably devise a solution
which will prevent that warning from occurring as well.

Anyway... I will see if I can arrange it so that any error or warning
indicates a problem and no errors or warnings indicates that all's
