Re: Problem compiling 1.1.15

After a few more tries, I found the culprit.  Here are the output from 

As distributed:

c++ -ansi -fno-implicit-templates -O2  -Wall -Wno-reorder -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith -Wnested-externs -Woverloaded-virtual -Wbad-function-cast -I. -I./../include -I./../generic -DSTDC_HEADERS=1 -DHAVE_LIMITS_H=1 -DHAVE_ST_BLKSIZE=1 -DSP_HAVE_BOOL=1 -DSP_HAVE_LOCALE=1 -DSP_ANSI_CLASS_INST=1   -c ParserState.cxx

And after a local ./configure.

c++ -ansi -fno-implicit-templates -O2  -Wall -Wno-reorder -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith -Wnested-externs -Woverloaded-virtual -Wbad-function-cast -I. -I./../include -I./../generic -DSTDC_HEADERS=1 -DHAVE_LIMITS_H=1 -DHAVE_ST_BLKSIZE=1 -Dsig_atomic_t=int -DSP_HAVE_BOOL=1 -DSP_HAVE_LOCALE=1 -DSP_ANSI_CLASS_INST=1   -c ParserState.cxx

Note the "-Dsig_atomic_t=int" in the local version.

My fix is:

In ~/sgmltools.1.15/sp/configure, line 1303, add "#include <signal.h>.

1297   cat > conftest.$ac_ext <<EOF
1298 #line 1299 "configure"
1299 #include "confdefs.h"
1300 #include <sys/types.h>
1302 #include <stdlib.h>
1303 #include <signal.h>
1304 #endif
1305 EOF

Not really elegant but it works.

It also helps to link "guide" to "guide.sgml" in the
~/sgmltools.1.15/doc directory.

I can't remember where I got it.  The "sgml" tools are scattered all
over the web.  Sorry.
