'FILE' undeclared (first use in this function)
... usually means you're missing a library. But could it be that the psybnc version is quite old and using legacy libraries etc?

It works now. I dont know why, tried extracting the arvhive several times, and now for some reason i dont get those error messages. have some new ones now, but seems i just need to install ncurses libs, should be able to figure that out.
Thanks for your response.
