Well, your question makes me wonder on which platforms you test your
-ng code (and why those?).

So, I ran simple some "./configure && make" tests on slackware 12,
11, 10.2, and 10.0 (both plain source of -ng and Jari's patch
applied). You seem to be "in the clear" of some serious slackware
wrath, it seems. ;p

Anyhow, why -ng in the first place; what's wrong with mainline
util-linux? A link will do, just curious.
