Sounds like vda's r16075 change to me.

r16112 has a partial fix to make it build again. We (e.g. vda ;) should
provide empty bodies for read_or_build_utent() and write_utent() if UTMP
support is disabled. This can go hand in hand with removing the
pointless forward decls for said functions.

thanks for pointing this out,
