Since then, I have had reports of other two or three other operating
systems also lacking "ut_syslen". Perhaps the way to address this (and
perhaps this is what you are doing anyway, Jeremy!) is to put an:
(or similar) into aclocal.m4 so that "configure" can test this and pick it
up. (And, of course, rebuild the "configure" script before shipping.)
While on this subject, the very next line in connection.c is:
which is probably prone to overflow (though my knowledge of the "ptstr..."
parts of Samba is zero). Might "safe_strcpy(...)" be better? I have seen
"utmpx.h" files where ut_host declarations vary from 257 down to 64.
Hope that helps.
