[screen-devel] MacOS 10.5 and utmp

When compiling screen for MacOS 10.5 (Leopard) it tries to use
utmp.h and to write to /var/run/utmp.h (which doesn't exist).

>From /usr/include/utmp.h:

 * This header file is DEPRECATED and only provided for compatibility
 * with previous releases of Mac OS X.  Use of these structures, especially
 * in 64-bit computing, may corrupt the utmp, wtmp and lastlog files.
 * Use the utmpx APIs instead.

Any chance of screen using umtpx in the near future? I saw that
utmpx is supported for some other platforms, but my first
layman attempts to make this work for MacOS 10.5 didn't work.
