As part of the FAQ list, I would like a table of architectures, OSes,
and compilers with which rc is known to work.  If you've managed to
compile rc on a system which you do not see on this list, please drop
me a line.  

Replies from RS/6000 and HP users would be especially welcome.  Has
anyone managed to get rc to compile on a VAX?  I spent a frustrating
hour battling vcc and pcc with unproto as my excalibur before retiring
from the field, but we don't have gcc on our VAXen.

Thanks to everyone who responded to this first time around.


1.4     Can I compile rc on a ... machine with ... operating system and
        ... compiler?

        rc is written in portable ANSI C, but it can be compiled by many
        older C compilers after passing the sources through unproto (get
        /pub/unix/unproto4.shar.Z by anonymous FTP from ftp.win.tue.nl).

        If you use gcc, make sure it is at least as new as v1.39.

        rc has been successfully compiled on systems with the following
        combinations of architectures, operating systems, and compilers:

            [a] The native C compiler.
            [b] Sources pre-processed with unproto.
            [c] Sun's yacc has a memory leak -- use another
                implementation such as GNU bison (see 7.4).

            [e] rc v1.2.

            [g] This compiler has no stdarg.h, but vararg.h sufficed.
            [h] Requires intervention by hand to get mksignal to work,
                because of deficient sh, awk, etc.
            [i] See 4.13.
            [j] Minor modifications required to prototypes.
