What if a .c file has no header?  Is it a matter of creating such a 
header and including the prototypes in there?  something like 
'spec_procs.c' uses ACMD(do_say) quite often, and the file itself 
contains a prototype for ACMD(do_say) in each function that uses it; I'm 
not sure if creating a header file for a file would make the compiler 
hurl or what.
