That's OK, but I was wondering if anyone noticed.

Most of the login recording stuff (eg loginrec.c) is closely packed
#ifdefs and chained function calls.

That means adding extraneous arguments to the cray function and changing
the "user" argument for both to either "char *" or "const char *".

loginfailed() is an AIX library function, so it can't be renamed but we
can create a function in port-aix.c.  There's other stuff that might end
up in there (eg http://bugzilla.mindrot.org/show_bug.cgi?id=543).

I'll rework it and see how it looks.

    Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
