I just tried to build egcs 990517 last night on my pre-R5 system
(installed last weekend) and I hit a snag.  In gcc/genattrtab.c, it

In function `max_attr_value':
4733: `INT_MAX' undeclared (first use this function)

I have /usr/include/linux pointing into a 2.2.6 tree.  I haven't tried
to track this down in depth, but I'm hoping someone knows offhand what
the problem is.  I suspect I have messed up system headers.  Any help
would be appreciated.  I don't think it's an egcs problem because it
builds fine on HPUX and other platforms.

I upgraded to pre-R5 from a mklinux DR3 distrib with a few more recent
updates.  As an aside, I hit a couple of nasty problems.  First, the rpm
with all the network tools didn't get updated because the DR3 rpm had a
larger number than the pre-R5 rpm.  The second (this cost me a couple of
hours to rescue) is that pre-R5 (or DR3?) had the bright idea of setting
my keyboard to `us'.  Problem is, this keymap is for a PC keyboard.  All
my keys were mapped all over the place.  After I figured out what was
going on, I had to determine where all the characters really were so I
could edit the config file to use `mac-ext-us' instead.  BEWARE!

Since there aren't tons of complaints about this, it may be an artifact
of upgrading a DR3 install.
