Before I move the machine from my dorm room (where I have good stable 
access to the internet) to my office (where the access is at this point 
non-existant, but coming soon..) I decided to get the complete source 
tree and make everything.  

I cd'ed to /usr/src/ and issued the command "make build."  Things seemed 
to go fine until it got to making the libraries.  There the compiler 
stops with the error:

-I/var/jwf/ksrc11/usr/src/lib/libc/include -D__DBINTERFACE_PRI
cc1: warnings being treated as errors
/var/jwf/ksrc11/usr/src/lib/libc/gen/err.c: In function `_err':
/var/jwf/ksrc11/usr/src/lib/libc/gen/err.c:73: warning: `volatile' 
function does return
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1


Can anyone tell me what is wrong here/ what needs to be fixed/ why this 
won't compile ?  The code is all from and 
as of last night (3-4 June 1996).

Thanks for your help with this matter.
