Description michal 1999-12-13 05:57:51 UTC
A file includes/cf/linux.h from dhcp-2.0 is incorrect by falling
flat on an assumption that Linux means 32-bit processor.  This is false
at least on Alpha and UltraSPARC.  In such situations a server resulting
from a source recompilation is broken.

At this moment I worked around the problem by using the following

and modifying spec file accorgingly to apply this conditionally
on architecture.  Still this should be really fixed in sources
and the current beta of dhcp-3.0 at ISC is still broken.  This bug
was reported on dhcp-server mailing list.
