I am working on compiling the Columia Appletalk Package v 6.0 for use
on my NetBSD 1.0 A3000, using gcc 2.6.1. After several hourse of correcting
various source incompatibilities, I have found on I had trouble figuring out a
On linking aufs, I got an error saying _tell was undefined. After
looking all over the man pages, "ar -t /usr/lib/(each lib) | grep -e tell"-ing
all the libs, and then every lib on my system, and doing alot of other silly
stuff, I finally just about gave up. Then it suddenly jumped on my to look
at the man pages of a SunOS 4.1.3_U1 system, where I nicely found some
information - tell () is obsolete, but is equivilent to lseek (fd, 0L, SEEK_CUR).
I made the changes and gcc was happy.
Would it be appropriate to include a similar notification in the NetBSD
lseek man page, and link lseek's page to tell? If so, how would such a change
be reccommended to the people that can make such a change?
Murphy's Law of Net-posting was higly in effect here - as soon as I started
to write this as a question, I found the answer :^)
An another note, would anyone else be interested in my compiled binaries?
I could send them to ftp.uni-regensburg.de or (if I get off my lazy ___ and setup
anon ftp) pop them in my own pub.
