Apart from the standard configure and make it bombs out on fnmatch.c. In
In the lib directory there is a file fnmatch.h which contains the magic
definitions that you need. Unfortunatly they are wrapped in an ifdef.
Delete the two lines of the ifdef lines the definitions are used by the pre
processor and all is sweet. The ifdef is something magic about posix.
