I'm doing a make on "MySQL" on AIX 4.14 with GCC.

I'm getting module net.c errors in ip.h with "parse error for ip_xhl"

These are the orignial header files that came with the system, could these possibly be corrupted, just crap or does anybody have any ideas what the problem is.

Some of AIX's header files need preprcocessor constants
to be defined. Most notorious is the _ALL_SOURCE constant.
(add a -D_ALL_SOURCE to the compilers' command line).

I peeked the netinet/ip.h file and I found a _NO_BITFIELDS
constant there which has to be UNdefined if you want to
have BSD compatibilty.

Without seeing your source code, I can't be more specific,
but I'll bet you need to (un)define one of those constants ...

kind regards,
