I again Andreas and everyone. A little experiment: try compiling this:

#include <unistd.h>

int main()
  lseek64(1, 0, 1);

both as an *.cc and as an *.c file. Indeed, as warned by Andreas, the C
front end spits:

paolo:~> gcc -Wall no-proto.c
no-proto.c: In function `main':

no-proto.c:5: warning: implicit declaration of function `lseek64'
no-proto.c:6: warning: control reaches end of non-void function

On the other hand, /nothing/ happens for the C++ front end. I think the
specifics of C++ about prototypes are making my life easier...
