This is the same problem I had with redhat. According to this the 
"strcopy" function is not found. As I recall you have to add:

There is another error you will get about "abs" being missing in which 
case you have to add:


Now this is all from memory so I hope its correct. If the kind person who 
sent me this info in the first place confirm or deny what I have said 
that would be great. 

I did not have this problem using Debian, only redhat.

I did get it to compile with these modifications! 

Good luck.
