gnupg on Ultrix

I'm currently compiling GnuPG 1.0.4 on Ultrix (4.3a). I'm using gcc, gnu
make etc.
config options are --prefix=/usr/local --disable-nls

The following changes turned out to be necessary:

in tools/shmtest.c #include <sys/types.h> must be added before #include

in g10/status.c #include <sys/types.h> must be added before #include

it now seems to compile, but upon checking I get:

gmake[2]: Entering directory `/var/tmp/gnupg-1.0.4/checks'
../g10/gpg --no-options --quiet --yes --dearmor -o ./pubring.gpg
gpg: can't open /dev/zero: No such file or directory
gpg: can't mmap pool of 16384 bytes: No such file or directory - using
gpg: Please note that you don't have secure memory on this system
gmake[2]: *** [pubring.gpg] Error 2

any ideas how to fix that problem?
