Hi folks:

I'm getting the following error when I try to compile the IDEA module 
on Mac OS X.

[localhost:~] rguerra% gcc -Wall -O2 -shared -fPIC -o idea idea.c

OK? cc -Wall -O2 -shared -fPIC -o idea idea.c? yes
idea.c:129: redefinition of `ushort'
/usr/include/sys/types.h:80: `ushort' previously declared here

Can someone advise me as to what I might be able to do (or patch) to 
get it working?
