I think a requirement should be that someone else go through the
patches. How are these changes related to the ongoing style
discussion? I also noticed that you made changes which is the job of
indent. Like this

-    }
-    else {
+    } else {

Another time for the "feed all code through indent" discussion?!

As for the style: we have to add another question:

  if (is_barbarian(pplayer)) {
  /* If not barbarian, ... */
  } else {

  if (is_barbarian(pplayer)) {
  } else { /* If not barbarian, ... */

  if (is_barbarian(pplayer)) {
  } else {
    /* If not barbarian, ... */

As you renamed variables we may have to also setup a style guide on
this, since I'm not very happy with the variable naming in this
example (besides this it is a huge improvement):

-    for(i = 0; i < num_role_units(L_BARBARIAN_BUILD); i++) {
-      iunit = get_role_unit(L_BARBARIAN_BUILD, i);
-      if (get_unit_type(iunit)->attack_strength > bestattack) {
-       bestunit = iunit;
-       bestattack = get_unit_type(iunit)->attack_strength;
+    for (role = 0; role < num_role_units(L_BARBARIAN_BUILD); role++) {
+      Unit_Type_id unit = get_role_unit(L_BARBARIAN_BUILD, role);
+      if (get_unit_type(unit)->attack_strength > bestattack) {
+       bestunit = unit;
+       bestattack = get_unit_type(unit)->attack_strength;

IMHO this shouldn't be named "unit" but "unit_type" or "utype" or "type".

As for the question you have asked: we should try one function at a
time and see how this works.
