I think at this point every com_err library has diverged from every other
com_err library.  I'm not at all sure which com_err library out there is
"best" at this point; the one in e2fsprogs is probably the most reliable
in terms of backward compatibility, but the one in krb5 is probably the
best when it comes to thread safety issues.
