I'm trying to compile exim and xinetd with tcp_wrappers support and I'm
running into some funky problems.  My system is a -current (1.4R)
compiled a few days ago.

With exim I get the following errors:
    /usr/lib/ undefined reference to `allow_severity'
    /usr/lib/ undefined reference to `deny_severity'
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    *** Error code 1

Of course, a quick grep of shows that these refs are in the

With xinetd I get the following errors:
    .1.8.8pre8\"  -c access.c
    In file included from access.c:16:
    /usr/include/tcpd.h:90: syntax error before `FILE'
    *** Error code 1

Which is choking on the following in /usr/include/tcpd.h:
    extern char *xgets          /* fgets() on steroids */
            __P((char *, int, FILE *));

Commenting that particular line out causes xinetd to compile correctly
and to deny or accept connections based on /etc/hosts.allow.

Am I borking something up here or is this a genuine problem?
