|4.2.5. C library omissions|
INN uses library routines that might not be present in all Unix systems, although they should be. The lib directory provides versions of some of these routines, including copies of the freely- redistributable BSD string routines. The MISSING_SRC and MISSING_MAN parameters can be set to list those routines that are missing from your C library. If you don't have strcasecmp and strncasecmp then you will need the strcasecmp module built into your INN library. Add the ``.c'' and ``.o'' names to MISSING_SRC and MISSING_OBJ, respectively. The following routines are all found in the file of the same name. If they are missing from your system, add them the same way: memchr strchr getopt memcmp strrchr mkfifo memcpy strspn strerror memset strtok memmove If you are using version 1 of the GNU C compiler on a Sparc running SunOS, you should add inet_ntoa as a missing function. This is because the first version of gcc didn't properly pass structures into routines compiled with the Sun C compiler. If you have an older version of syslog add syslog.c and syslog.o to the appropriate parameters. Pyramid machines running OSx have fast assembly-language versions of the string routines in the ATT library. To use these routines, add ``$(OSXATTOBJ)'' to the MISSING_OBJS parameter. This will cause lib/Makefile to extract the object files from the ATT library, and add them to the INN library.
