configure issues several warnings, including
Could not find Tcl which is needed fro some tests
krb_db.h: present but cannot be compiled
krb_db.h: check for missing prerequisites headers?
krb_db.h: proceeding with the preprocessor's result

make issues warnings for nearly all successfully compiled files:
/usr/include/stdlib.h:111: warning: ANSI C does not support 'long long'
/usr/include/stdlib.h:117: warning: ANSI C does not support 'long long'
other make warnings include:
error.c:71: warning: no previous prototype for 'ss_error'
dk_decrypt.c:163: warning: pointer targets in assignment differ in signedness
(other, similar warnings in dk_encrypt.c, derive.c, ...)
stringtokey.c:79: warning: cast discards qualifiers from pointer target type
(many warnings in aes.c)
yarrow.c:448: warning: negative integer implicitly converted to unsigned type

The build eventually dies:
In file included from /usr/include/sys/param.h:98,
from ftp_var.h:111,
from ./cmdtab.c:39:
/usr/include/sys/signal.h:230: redefinition of 'my_sig_t'
ftp_var.h:62: 'my_sig_t' previously declared here
./cmdtab.c:35: warning: 'sccsid' defined but not used
*** Error code 1

Stop in /software/Kerberos/krb5-1.3.4/src/appl/gssftp/ftp.

I have captured the configure and make output using this shell script:
./configure -- prefix=/usr --enable-shared > config.stdout 2>&1
make > make.log 2>&1

Please advise if you would like to have me send either of these files
and/or the config.log file, or any other information needed to resolve this

I suspect configure made an erroneous assumption about the build
environment: This looks rather like the kinds of warnings and errors that
I see when trying to build winDoze programs with the wrong
compiler. However, I don't know enough about the gcc build process, etc.
to identify the underlying invalid assumption and correct it.

Truth and Falsehood were bathing. Falsehood came out of the water first and
dressed herself in Truth's clothes. Truth, unwilling to put on the garments
of Falsehood, went naked.

The "war on terror" is a sham: There is no real protection against
suicidal maniacs spurred on by creative madmen. In the end, the only
outcomes will be the destruction of the American economy due to pouring a
bankrupting stream of wealth into a bottomless pit, and the final
destruction of personal liberty in the name of "security." (When was the
last time you were asked for "Your papers, please?" - er, that is, "License
and registration?")

The rumors are untrue: I am *not* running for President in 2004...
