Can you verify for me that simply removing '#ifdef __cplusplus extern
"C" #endif' does the trick?  I don't think it should be needed at all in
that header file.  I don't see that there are any function

I just coded some fixes to these headers and will commit them once I
verify I didn't screw anything up.
