   Well, well, well. At the bottom of the page for tinydns.org is a short
paragraph about this problem. It apparently arose with glibc-2.3.1. There
are several flavors of patch out; all replace,
 	extern int error
with
 	#define <error.h>

Nothing on the daemontools or other Web pages about the need to apply the
patch if the library is 2.3.1 or newer.

Thanks!
