I cannot get it to compile. The configure script at some point starts
thinking that all the system headers are unavailable:

checking grp.h usability... no
checking grp.h presence... no
checking for grp.h... no
checking for limits.h... (cached) yes
checking for malloc.h... (cached) yes
checking for stdlib.h... (cached) yes
checking termios.h usability... no
checking termios.h presence... no
checking for termios.h... no
checking utime.h usability... no
checking utime.h presence... no
checking for utime.h... no
checking fcntl.h usability... no
checking fcntl.h presence... no
checking for fcntl.h... no

The corresponding config.log shows:

configure:8549: checking grp.h usability
configure:8562: gcc -c -O2 -I/usr/pkg/include -I/usr/include -Wall -I/usr/pkg/in
clude -I/usr/include -I$(top_srcdir) conftest.c >&5
top_srcdir: not found
gcc: no input files
configure:8565: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

and so on for other headers.

Please, what can be wrong? I'm running 2.0_BETA.

And BTW what are those enhancements you were writing about?
