The MS-DOS build does not call child_execute_job at all.  In Make 3.81, the definition of the function was mistakenly conditioned on _MSDOS_ as well.  Now it is only defined on other systems.  So this patch is not needed.

I'm closing this report.

Eli: I don't see this patch in the current CVS version.  Is this still needed?

The following patch should take care of this:

  • job.h [__MSDOS__]: Use the same prototype for child_execute_job as _EMX_ does.

Having run sh ./configure the makefile is produced successfully.
However, executing make results in the following error:

job.c:1898: error: conflicting types for 'child_execute_job'
job.h:79: error: previous declaration of 'child_execute_job' was here
job.c: In function 'child_execute_job':
job.c:1931: error: void value not ignored as it ought to be

Entire log attached as text file.

Notably, using exactly the same procedure the v3.80 compiles... but then again there are extra #ifdef conditions in v3.81.
