thanks for your help. it's solved the problem.
i thought it was something like that. i had already tried changing it to
tacacs_ut_time but that obviously still matches the macro.
i've renamed them to ut_tac3_time and ut_tac4_time and sac.c compiles
without error. it even appears to run correctly.
i'll make a non-maintainer release of sac_1.6-0_i386.deb later tonight
(unless Vincent wants me to mail my fixes to him for him to release) after
i've applied the same fixes to rawtmp.c

i only grepped for it in utmp.h - no wonder i didn't find it.
