OK.  I can find 7 of these renamed externals, in base, network and unix,
out of 88 in NetBSD 4.0.  This will obviously need to be revisited
occasionally, but I will be happy to make a patch.  Unified context
diff OK? It looks like, in base anyway, this actually goes in a .h file,
to a pattern like

   INLINE int
   __hscore_xyz( ... )
       return xyz( ... );
