I'm hoping someone can help me out with a problem i'm having with
compiling pppd on a system. I've managed to compile this version of
ppp successfully on 2 other systems running linux 1.2.13 kernel but with
this particular machine, i keep getting a compile error:

bash# make
cc -O2 -DDEBUGALL -I.. -D_linux_=1 -DGIDSET_TYPE=gid_t -c main.c -o main.o
cc -O2 -DDEBUGALL -I.. -D_linux_=1 -DGIDSET_TYPE=gid_t -c magic.c -o magic.o
cc -O2 -DDEBUGALL -I.. -D_linux_=1 -DGIDSET_TYPE=gid_t -c fsm.c -o fsm.o
cc -O2 -DDEBUGALL -I.. -D_linux_=1 -DGIDSET_TYPE=gid_t -c lcp.c -o 1lcp.o
lcp.c: In function `LcpEchoCheck':
lcp.c:1520: storage size of `ddinfo' isn't known
lcp.c:1525: `PPPIOCGTIME' undeclared (first use this function)
lcp.c:1525: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
lcp.c:1525: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [lcp.o] Error

Can anyone help me with a suggestion on how to overcome this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
