Yes, "select", "bypass" and "test" are all independent tests.
They must all yield "fix the file" for the fix to be applied.

I think  it would be better to prefix the current bypass expression

    "^[a-zA-Z0-9_ \t]*"

which will fail to match whenever there are any punctuation
characters on the line that preceed the "(*xdrproc_t)" string.
It would be an improvement because it would avoid constructing
unnecessary header files, a waste of both time and space.
You might consider different solutions on the different paths,
tho, being more conservative on the 2.95 branch.
