Hi !

I want to upgrade my Bind software to the lastest version
(Bind 8.2.2 p5) on my Digital UNIX (Alpha) machine.
This unit also have Digital IPv6 Software v6.3 installed.

When I type the command "make all" the compiler reports the
following error message(s).

# make all
Using .systype
Using .settings
if test ! -d threaded ; then mkdir threaded ; fi
cc -std  -g2 -O1 -Olimit 2000 -I../../port/decunix/include -I../../include 
-pthread -c herror.c  -o threaded/herror.o
cc: Error: /usr/include/netinet/in6.h, line 314: Missing type specifier or
type qualifier.
    u_int16m_t      sin6_port;          /* Transport layer port # */
cc: Error: /usr/include/netinet/in6.h, line 315: Missing type specifier or
type qualifier.
    u_int32m_t      sin6_flowinfo;      /* IPv6 flow information */
*** Exit 1
*** Exit 1
*** Exit 1

Can anyone help me to get Bind to compile on my machine?

Best Regards
