I can successfully build 9.6-ESV-R8 on an old bsdi 4.0.1 box using only the following tweak:

./configure --enable-getifaddrs=no

But with 9.6-ESV-R9b1 I am hitting a snag. Almost immediately after issuing make I get the following error:

In file included from ../include/isc/socket.h:66,
                 from socket.c:52:
../include/isc/sockaddr.h:37: field `ss' has incomplete type
socket.c: In function `build_msghdr_send':
socket.c:1224: warning: comparison between signed and unsigned
make[3]: *** [socket.o] Error 1

I know the proper advice is to retire the box or work on building bind 9.9. I will be retiring this box soon enough, but for now I need to keep it up and running. I tried 9.9 and it had all kinds of build issues. I feel my best shot a getting a working, secure bind on this OS is sticking with 9.6. Any help would be appreciated. And yes, I did google first.

Thank you
