You need to figure out what configure needs to do to find the size of
the data structure it needs.  It's probably a missing library in the
check that is being compiled.

Look in config.log and search for sun_path.  There might be some clues
in the compiler output there.

If you figure out what needs to be added, please let us know.

You will get strange runtime errors if you do this (the shared memory
file will be corrupt.)

Your system clock is wrong and some CVS files have datestamps that are
later than your current system time.
