During the 'make' I also saw this notice:

gcc -I. -I. -g -O2 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Wall -W -I./popt  -c acls.c -o acls.o
acls.c: In function `change_sacl_perms':
acls.c:735: warning: large integer implicitly truncated to unsigned type
acls.c: In function `set_acl':
acls.c:1163: warning: comparison is always false due to limited range of
data type
gcc -I. -I. -g -O2 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -Wall -W -I./popt  -c xattr.c -o
