That's a problem where I apparently didn't check in some updated files,
and the "bootstrap" process makes sure the file timestamps are such that
these updated files will not be rebuilt.  I'll regenerate these files soon.

This one is strange - we are using __func__ in a number of other places
now too, like ntp_loopfilter.c and ntpd.c.  It's also used heavily in
libevent, which is used by sntp (which is not yet built on Windows).

That's an addition from the NetBSD folks.  I'm not sure why they did

We sould enclose that in #ifdef HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H/#endif, as we do

I'll push out a beta4 now with this change in it.
