I'm trying to install XEmacs on my NetBSD/Mac68k system, and ran into a
couple problems.

First, for some reason, the configure process doesn't properly indicate
that getpgrp(2) takes no arguments.  It doesn't set GETPGRP_VOID in the
config.h file:

	cc -c -O2  -Demacs -I. -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I/usr/pkg/include
	-I/usr/X11R6/include process.c
	process.c: In function `create_process':
	process.c:999: too many arguments to function `getpgrp'

I've managed to work around this by manually editting src/config.h ...

So, it gets past that point, and then I run into this error (manually
wrapped for readability):

	/lisp/prim" ./temacs -batch -l ../prim/update-elc.el
	/usr/libexec/ Undefined symbol "_crc32" in \

Now, I've gone and rebuilt libpng just to be certain, and I verified the
build of temacs, and everything looks good.

So, what have I done wrong?  I've installed the identical package on
both of my i386 NetBSD machines with no issues!
