Make this bigger already?  Or, want to bet if we will need to increase
it for GCC 12 already?  Because for GCC 13 we almost certainly will :-)

The cast is nasty, and you reuse that expression (which includes an
expensive call, which GCC might not realise it can CSE) anyway.  You
can rewrite this like

  for (int i = 0; i < MAXLINES; i++)
    {
      int len = strlen (lines[i]);
      if (*real_pos > len)
	break;

      (*real_line)++;
      *real_pos -= len - 2;
    }

fixing both these issues.

No vfprint?  Aww :-)  You didn't yet see any use for formatted fatal
errors I guess.

If you test after the increment you don't need the - 1 ;-)

So, can this overflow linebuf?  I didn't see a test for that.

C++ forces such unsightly casts, sigh.  Well there are worse things.
Some certain operator comes to mind.


Thanks for this cleanup!  In the new builtin definitions lines are much
shorter than before, but a few got really long anyway :-)

Okay for trunk.  Thanks!
