[LDM #LHS-201108]: Problems with LDM installation

Interesting.  The LDM package doesn't use the "long long" type,
so there's no reason to check for it.  I suspect that the
problem lies with the compilation environment (e.g., some 
genera-purpose header files require "long long" support but
the compiler doesn't have that turned on by default.

What does the c89(1) manual page say about the "-qlonglong"
option (I don't have access to that page from here).

What's the <sys/ras.h> header-file for?  Who's including

The number of arguments in a pqact(1) EXEC and PIPE entry
has been dramatically increased.  I'll go to the relevant
ticket and send you the details.
