problem on Linux 6u3 system:

Linux xxxx 2.6.39-200.29.1.el6uek.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Jul 6 08:46:18 EDT 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  (Oracle Linux 6u3; Redhat derivative)

This is a similar problem, so I updated, as a workaround:

// # include <sys/stropts.h>

// # include <sys/stropts.h>

// # include <sys/stropts.h>

tty.sh -> which generates tty.c
// #include <sys/stropts.h>    /* for I_POP */


Compiles, and runs fine after edit

I note that this missing file has come up before in MacOS but I can't find a similar bug related to Fedora 16.
