Bug#1880: Compile error dpkg-1.0.5.tar.gz

Package: dpkg

I try to compile dpkg-1.0.5, both with GCC 2.5.8 (a.out target) and
GCC 2.7.0 (ELF target) and in both cases I got:

filesdb.c: In function `sysinfo':
filesdb.c:30: `__NR_sysinfo' undeclared (first use this function)
filesdb.c:30: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
filesdb.c:30: for each function it appears in.)
make[1]: *** [filesdb.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/dpkg-1.0.5/main'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Note: I don't have Debian installed, but I need dpkg to unpack some
of the Debian packages.

I just did a "./configure" (worked fine) and "make", which gave the
above result.

Thanks for any help.
