These lines are needed for pseudo.c, which is a pty API abstraction
library. These files are used on some flavors of UNIX to deal with
pseudo ttys. This is all related to the xsu version included with setup

I guess you can safely ignore these warnings, unless you are actually
cross-compiling. Maybe there is a cleaner way to do this test?
