[18:40] [asmodai at nexus] (1130) {139} % clang char.c
char.c:166:12: error: redefinition of 'groups'
char_group groups[MAX_GROUPS];
In file included from char.c:56:
./char.h:133:19: error: previous definition is here
extern char_group groups[];
Additional information:

typedef struct {
        char *name;
        letter *defn;
} char_group;

For all I know this should be valid. At least icc and gcc don't complain about
it. And verifying with my standards and reference works I cannot see why it is
