lib/include files and compiling...

Hi.

Just curious as to why in /usr/include/stdio.h:
FILE *  _EXFUN(tmpfile, (void));

While many others (Linux, OpenBSD) have
extern FILE *tmpfile __P ((void));

What is the motivation behind putting the _EXFUN infront of the 'tmpfile'
instead of behind it?   I am finding that this is causing some compatibility
problems and I cannot compile things because of it.


Thanks!
