Has anyone tried to compile magic, the VLSI layout tool
under LinuxPPC?

I tried, and it chokes twards the end.  I don't have
the error message right in front of me, but
I will repost it.

Here's where you can find info and download the source
to magic:


1. HELP: Compiling Magic (the VLSI layout tool) under LinuxPPC

 Has anyone successfully compiled Magic
under LinuxPPC?
I keep getting two main errors --
sys_errlist has conflicting types (in magic.h and stdio.h, I think)
and a parse error near "instead" (in /usr/include/stdio.h)
(but I can't find the word "instead" on or near the line number
the compiler error gives me -- weird)

I get the same errors when compiling under x86 RedHat 6.1.
Has anyone successfully compiled this?
Someone must have, since there is an x86 rpm binary for Magic.
