     I obtained the gnu finger version 1.37 from
ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/finger/finger-1.37.tar.gz and am having
problems compiling it. 

The make breaks, asking for a non-existent <sys/fault.h> file.

My Machine configurations are as follows (as in /proc/cpuinfo ):
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 7
model name      : Pentium III (Katmai)
stepping        : 3
cpu MHz         : 498.488
cache size      : 512 KB
fdiv_bug        : no
hlt_bug         : no
f00f_bug        : no
coma_bug        : no
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 2
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 sep mtrr pge mca
cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr sse
bogomips        : 992.87

OS Version with version of gcc compiler (as in /proc/version)

Linux version 2.4.8-26mdk (address@hidden) 
gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Mandrake Linux 8.1 2.96-0.62mdk)) 
#1 Sun Sep 23 17:06:39 CEST 2001

I did not give any arguments to ./configure

   * Changes you made to the GNU Finger configuration files.........NONE

   * Any changes you have made to the source code or installation
     Following change to error.c to coincide with the declaration of
sys_errlist[] in stdio.h (as this again breaks the make)

     //extern char *sys_errlist[];
     //Changed to coincide with /usr/include/stdio.h
     extern __const char *__const sys_errlist[];

   * My network configuration (as shown by ifconfig -a)

    * Compiler output (during make (without any command line argument))
      (current directory : /home/downloads/finger/finger-1.37 )

Any ideas as to from where the missing <sys/fault.h> file can be
obtained ??
