Understood.  There seem to be different CFLAGS for zlib, perhaps
we should use the original authors settings when compiling anything
that is not rrdtool itself ?

Indeed, rrdtool itself also has this problem.  It turns out to be a
function by the way, not a variable.  A small test program shows that
I can indeed use the function "y1" but only if I link to the math library.

	#include <stdio.h>
	#include <math.h>

	int main(void) {
        	return 0;

	CFLAGS = -lm
	all: tester

program run:
	[alex at home tester]$ make
	cc -lm    tester.c   -o tester
	[alex at home tester]$ ./tester
	[alex at home tester]$

Best of course is to find a way to disable these functions.  I've
tried and failed.  Perhaps someone else knows how to do this.

I don't know what is second best.  IMHO warnings for shadowed
variables are good, if they do not occur normally.

Before writing a note to the author of libart I need to we're not
going to change CFLAGS for it.
