I've run into some problems and errors. I wanted to let you know about
them. Some I think I fixed without difficulty, some I suspect will cause
me trouble soon.
1. configure defaulted to cc; had to force gcc
2. src/util/ss/help.c "DIR" was not previously declared. I renamed "d" and
changed the variable type to void *.
3. src/util/db2/db/db.c O_NONBLOCK not previously declared/defined. I
removed the reference to it.
4. src/util/db2/recno/rec_open.c S_IRUSR and S_IWUSR not previously
declared/defined. I removed both references and replaced them with (void
*) null. Jeez, do you think that'll work in the object file :P
5. src/lib/krb5/ccache/file/fcc_gennew.c S_IWUSR and S_IRUSR undeclared
again. Methinks an important header file is missing? Removed them and
replaced with a NULL.
6. src/lib/krb5/keytab/file/ser_ktf.c O_ACCMODE undefined. Deleted from
line 169 and line 286. Hey, i wonder if all these deletes will make the
software any less stable?
7. src/lib/kdb/kdb_dbm.c size of utbuf isn't known, line 472. Unable to
resolve, compile stopped here.

I'd appreciate any advice or help you can offer.

I don't think it will be particularly easy to get krb5 to work on Next. However, we can certainly
work on fixes to the bugs you suggest.
Basically, these are constants that are undefined in some of the header files
removing them will not work.

You should look up the man page for the functions in which they are being used and attempt
to determine what the code is doing. When we get around to fixing these problems, we can probably send you a patch.
