Any updates?

I updated the patch to apply against v6.6.4 in Gentoo and ajusted the "" thing.

PS: Debian/Ubuntu are apply something similar,

minor nit: your patch has "files.h" still say "" in the header. otherwise, this looks good + works well for me.

Fri 18 Feb 2011 05:27:53 AM UTC, original submission:

The *_LOC variables are never used in the build itself, but only in the
built code; this means that they don't need to be known to ./configure at

Since the previous method made acct not cross-compilable at all, this is
much preferred.

Note: before applying this patch it is necessary to execute

% svn mv files.h

otherwise it won't apply cleanly.
