If I made a patch of the source, it would probably break compilation
under Linux. The reasons are 1) I added an absolute pathname so that
lib/lock.c got the BSD "file.h" instead of the SYSV one and 2) I
commented out the reference to catchsig.sa_restorer in main/help.c
since my system (Solaris 2.4) does not have that structure member. I
don't know autoconf well enough to fix these properly. I will still
send you the patch if you are interested. Otherwise, just close this
