Hi Ernst,
Problem is that HPUX does not have a C99 compatible version of snprintf (or
vsnprintf, I forget which).  Either way, what happens is that the snprintf.c
module has ifdef's that make sure that we DON'T include stdio.h if we are
going to redefine snprintf or vsnprintf (which we ARE, since we don't have a
C99 version).  The ifdef's do their job, but UNFORTUNATELY, we DO include
another module, called stdlib.h, which includes pwd.h, which includes
stdio.h (oops!), and so you get the redefinition error.
Not actually sure what to do about this at this time....
I'll let you know if I come up with anything...

\Is this the right list for these type of questions??

When i do a configure --with-fhs everything seems 2 go fine but when i
do a make i get this:

Using LIBS = -lgen -lsec  -lnsl
Compiling lib/snprintf.c
lib/snprintf.c:764: conflicting types for `vsnprintf'
/opt/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/hppa1.1-hp-hpux/3.0/include/stdio.h:494: previous
declaration of `vsnprintf'
lib/snprintf.c:779: conflicting types for `snprintf'
/opt/gnu/lib/gcc-lib/hppa1.1-hp-hpux/3.0/include/stdio.h:493: previous
declaration of `snprintf'
make: *** [lib/snprintf.o] Error 1

It seems there are a few differences of declarations in the include
We use gcc version 3.0 and on the OS we've got the latest patchbundel
of June installed.
Is this a knows error? and is there a fix for it?

With kind regards,

Ernst Cozijnsen
