I was trying to compile the new 1.9.18 release under Linux 2.0.31
an get error:

amerika:/usr/src/samba-1.9.18p1/source # make
Using CFLAGS = -O -DSMBLOGFILE="/var/log.smb"
-DNMBLOGFILE="/var/log.nmb" -DCONFIGFILE="/etc/smb.conf"
-DWEB_ROOT="/usr/local/samba-1.9.18p1" -DLOCKDIR="/var/locks"
-DDRIVERFILE="/usr/local/samba-1.9.18p1/lib/printers.def" -DLINUX
Using LIBS =      
Compiling util.c
util.c: In function `BlockSignals':
util.c:3927: incompatible types in assignment
make: *** [util.o] Error 1
amerika:/usr/src/samba-1.9.18p1/source #

The problem is with 1.9.18 and 1.9.18p1

I had no problems compiling earlier versions. What's wrong?
