Re: Need help (building ncurses-4.2)

Hi. Yes, this happened to be the case...

Yesterday night I tried it again and realized I was linking with
Linux's libc6 when creating the shared library (I think this counts as
being "funny").

Once I fixed that, it "almost worked": Now I have a portability problem.
The Debian version uses setfsuig and setfsgid, to solve a security
problem, I think.

Since these functions seems to be missing in the Hurd (will they be
always missing?), I will have to replace them by something else or just
remove those patches for the GNU/Hurd version of ncurses.

So: Is setfsuig a "Linuxism"? Is there a replacement?
