You'll not find that you have half the headers or libraries you need,
even though you've installed SCO's development system. Furthermore, all
the utilities are years out of date.

You'd at least stand a better chance if you installed GNU's gcc,
binutils and other stuff. I once compiled all these on Open Server
5.0.5, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Go to usenet comp.unix.sco.misc and ask there. Jean-Pierre Radley has an
arsenal of ready-compiled stuff; furthermore, I'm sure other Open Server
users have done/tried to do what you want and could help one way or
another. Better still is ditching Open Server and choosing a more modern
OS, but then you probably already know that.
