Could you send me a patch or, alternatively, the entire file? That's far
less error-prone than trying to repeat your changes ;)

The getpwnam_r function (and another one, getgrnam_r or something) make
trouble under Solaris, too. Apparently the standard was a bit slow so
UNIX flavors rolled their own versions first and now stick to them.. I'm
confident that there's some define that will fix this ;)

The function may be called from somewhere else, too. I know that the
getgrnam_r function is. It's a very slight chance that this is a
problem, but I'm sure you know about Murphy and Million-To-One chances

That'd be great :) I'll send you an SSH key in a seperate mail..
