The version of LWP installed on your system is too old, you probably
need to build/install version 2.5. (and update to rpc2-2.8 and rvm-1.16)

The source archives for these should be here,


As an aside, as of the -6.9.4 release, the easiest way to get a
consistent build is to actually move the lwp, rpc2 and rvm sources into
the Coda source tree under lib-src and build everything as one, i.e.

    tar -xzf coda-6.9.4.tar.gz
    tar -xzf lwp-2.5.tar.gz  ; mv lwp-2.5 coda-6.9.4/lib-src/lwp
    tar -xzf rpc2-2.8.tar.gz ; mv rpc2-2.8 coda-6.9.4/lib-src/rpc2
    tar -xzf rvm-1.16.tar.gz ; mv rvm-1.16 coda-6.9.4/lib-src/rvm

or if you are using git,

    git clone git://
    cd coda
    git submodule init
    git submodule update
    autoreconf -f -i

Then configure will find the lib-src/ versions of the libraries and we
will build and link against them,

    ./configure --prefix=/usr
