Hi!

(/tmp) rpm -q -f /usr/include/termcap.h
libtermcap-devel-2.0.8-10

The above version of libtermcap uses the following header files:

#include <features.h>
#include <termios.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

To fix the above error, one have to modify and test configure on a
machine that shows the above error.

Note that the code in MySQL looks as follows:

------
#if defined(HAVE_TERMIOS)
#include <termios.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#elif defined(HAVE_TERMBITS_H)
#include <termbits.h>
#elif defined(HAVE_ASM_TERMBITS_H)
#include <asm/termbits.h>			// Standard linux
#endif
-----

In other words, if one has termbits.h installed:

(/tmp) rpm -q -f /usr/include/termbits.h
glibc-devel-2.0.7-29

Then one shouldn't get the problem that happened to Phil.

The many different Linux/libc versions/combinations are sometimes a
real pain...

Monty
