Attempted to install qmail, daemontools-0.70 failed to install.


I have successfully installed qmail 1.0.3 and ucspi-tcp-0.88, but the daemontools-0.70 failed when I atempted to run it using the 'make' command.

This is the error output and what does it means? I've seen it all over the net without any solutions.

Code:
debian:/usr/local/src/daemontools-0.70# make
./compile tai64nlocal.c
tai64nlocal.c: In function `main':
tai64nlocal.c:54: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
tai64nlocal.c:55: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
tai64nlocal.c:56: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
tai64nlocal.c:57: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
tai64nlocal.c:58: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
tai64nlocal.c:59: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
tai64nlocal.c:60: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
make: *** [tai64nlocal.o] Error 1
debian:/usr/local/src/daemontools-0.70#

Re: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type

I have the same problem

First it build, when I was using gcc-4.2.4, now I have gcc-4.3.3 and it fails with

CC [M] osl/dazukofs/file.o
osl/dazukofs/file.c: In function 'dazukofs_open':
osl/dazukofs/file.c:185: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
make[2]: *** [osl/dazukofs/file.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [osl/dazukofs] Error 2
make: *** [osl] Error 2

So I suppose that it's due to our Compilers (Incomplete or no translation) rather than with the Kernel(in my case) !

The only thing that change with me is The Compiler Version !!!
I will Build daemontools-0.70 later I currently build Gnome Desktop environment and
at the same time I tried to rebuild kernel-2.6.29 with DasukoFS and thats when I step on the problem. I have successfully build libdaemon-0.13 ...
