I had the same problem, also on a DEC ALPHA OSF1 4.0 system.  I
grepped the entire source code for 'ttytype' and only found it in two
lines, the one mentioned above and another a few lines away in the
same file.  I figured it was a typo and changed both instances to,
IIRC, 'termtype', which also appeared in the vicinity and *was*
declared in some .h file or other.  It then compiled.  That was ver.
2.6, I believe, and my system upgraded to 2.7 a month or two ago, so I
haven't had to build my own copy since.

Disclaimer:  I took  one 'Intro to C' class >5 years ago, forgot most
of that, and have no idea what I'm doing where computers are involved.
