Yes, the IPv6 patch which was supposed to not break anything unless
--enabled actually turned out to break most things aside from
BSD/Linux, and I have been gradually trying to sort out their header
Other good news is that "make check" now seems to work on most
platforms, except for Redhat/Insure++ which generates some
apparently spurious warnings.
Thanks, I know about those two. I'm going to try to fix them today.
I'm not sure if you've seen this:
It's a pretty good tool, since I don't have direct access to (for
example) a CRAY. The downside is that it requires changes to be
checked in to HEAD for them to be tested.
It's not easy being green!

__P is an idiom for handling old compilers that can't cope with ANSI
prototypes. We don't support them, so I just need to get rid of it.
