Oh, sorry for the noise, I need to correct the i386 issue. On a FreeBSD 
6.1-PRERELEASE box GMT 4.1 compiles without a mess, it seems the 
fpresetsticky() funtion is only available in anm i386 environment. 
Commenting out this on a amd64 box solves the problem, but I doubt this 
will be the right way, although there is no such function available on
