Re: [Bacula-devel] [PATCH] Make bacula(-client) work on IRIX 6.5

Hi Kern,

stdint.h should only be included in c99 mode and I'm compiling for ANSI (as
you may have noticed in the flags). It's just unnecessary and throws an error
every time included, so I've commented it out.

Yes, which is a pity. Take IRIX for example: The usual case is that autotools
make more problems then it solves. If one has to test the "portable" way on
every architecture anyways, why not just make a set of conditional variables
set how they should be set on each architecture? Anyways, we don't want to
discuss autotools in this thread :-).

OK, I will have an eye on that as soon as I have generated the inst-package
and running it productively.

Yes. I think the MIPSpro we have here does optimize a lot better for the MIPS
architecture than the gcc. Also, my system administrator doesn't like GNU
software at all :-).

Thanks for your mails and for helping to eliminate the problems. I really
appreciate it.
