Dear GAP Forum, and Dear John,

Dima Pasechnik passed your query from sci.math.symbolic on to the GAP
Forum (see http://www-gap.dcs.st-and.ac.uk/gap/Info/forum.html).

To compile GAP 3.4.4 (I haven't tried earlier 3.4.x kernels, but there
are very few changes) on Linux with glibc2 (libc6) you need to give the
compiler an extra option:

make ibm-i386-linux-gcc2 COPTS="-DSYS_HAS_IOCTL_PROTO"

You should then get no more than a few warnings, and the resulting
binary should work. Let us know if this doesn't work.
