Unfortunately, no, that's not all you need to do. I solved this by adding
an #include <sys/types.h> in _G_config.h.
It gets worse, however. Somewhere along the way you'll get a mismatch
between a function that's declared as int with unsigned int arguments. I
solved that by copying over the functions and declared them as unsigned int.

John Kohl said he got HylaFAX working with gcc 2.6.3 but with the NetBSD
supplied libg++. You might want to try that first.
