Hi Michael, Aly

I have downloaded the source using cvs as you instructed and compiled it
however I keep getting the error below after the command "make all", i
have edited Makefile commenting out the package wget, I also tried
editing ftp.c and http.c by inserting "include <netdb.h>" and still i
get the errors below. If I opt not to change anything I will get the
compile error for the wget package. Hope you can shed light on this one
thanks.


for odir in packages packages/mg lib src/mgpp src/colservr src/recpt
src/txt2db src/db2txt src/hashfile src/getpw src/phind/generate; do
echo making all in $odir;
(cd $odir && make all) || exit 1;
done
making all in packages
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/gsdl/packages'
Makefile:52: *** commands commence before first target. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/gsdl/packages'
make: *** [all] Error 1


Regards,
Paul
