Hi

This is likely to become a FAQ. A fair amount of older software won't
compile against 2.3.2. It will error out with:-

undefined reference to `errno'

As per here:-

http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2002/debian-devel-200212/msg01560.html

the solution is to add "#include <errno.h>" and remove references to "extern
int errno;"

Good luck.

Greg
