    Fine :-)

    Ok. I added a point in the TODO list to define PATH_MAX somewhere in a
    global file (if it's not defined by the system).

    Maybe I didn't understand this but can't you use something like
    CFLAGS="-whatever -debugflag -necessary" ./configure"?

    Ok. But this doesn't seem to harm compilation, because every reference
    to "JX" is in some sort of #ifdef (or am I wrong?). At least here on
    Unix. That's a job for the Nec maintainer, Fukuda Kazuya. I added a
    point on the TODO list.

    At least SANE compiled cleanly on these platforms so they seem to have
    shm.h. I'm not an expert in these things.

    My fault. The change to --disable-warnings was done in CVS after the
    pre snapshot and will be in the released version.

    I see. What's the source of the problem? The initialisation or the
    missing name?

    Maybe you can put a patch or a description what you did on a web page?
