Will use #ifdef F_OK, I think.

OK.
I've put innetgr in its own file under src/stubs/
This probably means I'd need to change logwtmp, also (I had it in
stubs/utmpx.c)

Maybe.

I think I did that before _GNU_SOURCE included strings.h ...

By the way, I noticed that strings.h seems to be specified (without
bzero & co.) in X/Open 2008. I'm inclined to test like so:

#if defined(_BSD_SOURCE) || defined(_GNU_SOURCE) \
 || !defined(_XOPEN_SOURCE)

That way, the X/Open namespace is respected, but -D_BSD_SOURCE
-D_XOPEN_SOURCE will get everything.

Whitespace, I think.
