Probably ecpg needs to import the ports/snprintf module if it exists.
See psql, which does this already.

I wonder whether it is possible to avoid including <sys/ipc.h> in the
files that need to include parse.h. Which files show the warning,

I think it's set to filter out nonsubscribers just like all the other
pgsql lists. Considering the amount of spam we were getting before
we put in those filters, I'm not eager to just remove the filter.
Better ideas are welcome...

One idea: does anyone know whether bug submissions via the webpage form
go through if sent by a nonsubscriber? If not, maybe we could arrange
an exception in the filter for that case.

BTW, you can (should) subscribe to "pgsql-loophole", and then you'll be
allowed to post to any of the pgsql lists. However, that's no help for
someone who's not already involved in the community, but is just coming
along and trying to report a bug.
