That's the spirit!  :-)

The file "src/port/misc/udposix.h.in" is the precursor to
"src/port/misc/udposix.h".  It's converted into the latter by the
configure(1) script (which you can't run on a Windows system).  The
configure(1) script changes the file, as necessary, according to the
peculiarities of the programming enviroment.

I suggest that you copy "udposix.h.in" to "udposix.h" (in the same
directory).  Modify it as necessary (you might try doing nothing,

Then, return to the "src/lib" directory of UDUNITS and try (re)compiling
those files.

Please keep me apprised.
