Major update: The technique I was using for the blog post, and the
simplified technique I suggested here earlier, turned out to produce
significant errors.  I've spent the past several days writing a
program that will compute header inventories _properly_.  That program
is now ready for other people to poke at.  Please see
<>.  In addition to running against OSes / embedded toolchains of interest, people who
remember elder days are requested to take a close look at the
'b-obsolete' and 'b-ucom' lists of obsolete and still-useful,
respectively, nonstandard but widely available header files and see if
there are any errors.
