Hi Thomas,

We moved on to glibc, and the errors you describe are a result of
certain type definitions missing from the libc5 include files. (In the
case of va_atime/va_mtime/va_ctime, struct timespec). You could try
to `steal' the definition from the linux kernel-includes by adding
#include <linux/time.h> to, but that's a change we will not put
in our code, because we want to minimize any dependency on kernel level

You'll probably run into some more of these, and in the end it could even
be easier to upgrade your system to a glibc based environment.

I wouldn't know where that would occur, is looks like some default rule for 
building the libreadline.a library is triggered. Do you have any details on
