Martin --

I got egd installed and working properly, but now openssh craps out
under 'make install' because of:
[gumby(~/openssh-1.2.2)] sudo make install
        gcc -g -O2 -Wall -I/usr/local/ssl/include -D_HPUX_SOURCE
-DETCDIR=\"/usr/local/etc\" -DSc
In file included from config.h:336,
                 from includes.h:22,
                 from atomicio.c:26:
defines.h:93: parse error before `u_int64_t'
defines.h:93: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
*** Error exit code 1


This machine is running HP-UX 10. Would you know how to go about
adding the proper definitions to the types.h file?

(Or where I could read about how to do it?)

Thanks a lot,
