Just to let you know, the current version inn-CURRENT-20000614 won't compile
innfeed due to a name clash.


Both define warn and die as functions with the same arguments/types. Under
FreeBSD 3.4/gcc this results in a fatal linking error. Renaming the functions
within innfeed to innfeed_warn and innfeed_die solve the problems.

My guess is that eventually innfeed will use the general routines in the
library, but for the minute it may be easier just to rename one set of them.
