Re: More compile problems with Linux 2.2

I just compiled on glibc-2.1 (not RedHat) with no problems.  I had to
comment out the glibc version check around the __fdbits hack, but tother
than that, there was a single warning about duplication of a prototype
(logout) in port.h and utmp.h.

I haven't tried all the programs, cause I don't have a modem on my
notebook, but they are all compiled and all the clients work correctly...
