Summary:  UNICOS 9.0 - can't figure out how to use your getmntent()

Original Submission:  The configure step of findutils-4.2.9 failes on a
CRAY Y-MP EL running UNICOS 9.0

checking how to call getmntent()... configure: error: I can't figure out how to 
use your getmntent() function.

config.log has the following:
configure:18149: checking how to call getmntent()
configure:18181: cc -c -g  conftest.c >&5
cc-106 cc: WARNING File = conftest.c, Line = 185
  The declaration of "MMM" has no type specifier.
cc-498 cc: ERROR File = conftest.c, Line = 185
  A "," or ")" is expected where "*" appears in a function prototype.
cc-428 cc: ERROR File = conftest.c, Line = 185
  The type of "getmntent" is not compatible with its previously declared type.
cc-645 cc: ERROR File = conftest.c, Line = 185
  There is no comma or semicolon after a declaration.

I think the -lsun problem has just been fixed by an update to gnulib.  The 
EOVERFLOW is now protexted with #ifdef.  I've fixed the 
gl_CHECK_TYPE_STRUCT_DIRENT_D_INO problem locally, but that really needs a 
patch to gnulib.  I have sent a patch to the uptream maaintainers of gnulib.

findutils-4.2.10 gets further but does not have an EOVERFLOW
symbol, so that code needs to be protected.

There is also some strange binary output in the config.out
as a part of the fact that configure contains a bare reference
to gl_CHECK_TYPE_STRUCT_DIRENT_D_INO before the check for
ssize_t on line 6129. Obviously, this should be fixed too.

Patching find/find.c to protect the EOVERFLOW with #ifdef
lets the compilation finish with only warnings.

It should be noticed that the latest GNULIB stuff seems to
have re-introduced the LIBS=-lsun in the find/Makefile, so
the GNULIB folks probably need to be more careful.

As the machine does not have 'runtest' installed, it is not
possible to use 'make check' to do anything meaningful. I
did a few sample 'find' commands myself and they seemed to
work okay.

Please try findutils-4.2.10, which I have just uploaded to alpha.gnu.org.   It 
now uses a gnulib function to enumerate the system's mounted file systems.  
That should be more portable.
