etexextra.c:1491: conflicting types for `makefullnamestring'
etexcoerce.h:983: previous declaration of `makefullnamestring'
make[5]: *** [etexextra.o] Error 1

I wanted to fix this myself by changing the type of  
makefullnamestring() to match the declaration (strnumber, which is a  
unsigned short and not an int), but when I try to tell p4 I want to  
edit the file I get:

[dumbledore:TeX/texk/web2c] root# p4 edit etexextra.c
etexextra.c - file(s) not on client.

Which is weird, as the file is obviously there.

So, someone else has to do that.
