I believe these warnings are unrelated to the patch.  there are plenty
of places that use int32_t or even worse u_int32_t to hold time.
items from dhcpd.h that look suspicious to me include:


I've attached a patch that includes the previous one and also fixes
some of the above.  it builds with zero warnings on i386, and one
(unrelated) on alpha.

unfortunately, time_t is not the only source of trouble for isc-dhcp
on 64-bit platforms.  parts the code also seem to assume that pointers
are 32-bit (this triggers the aforementioned warning on alpha).

btw, none of this actually gets to the dhcp lists since they are
subscriber-only and I don't particularly feel like subscribing, so all
my emails bounce.
