Thanks David.  How about the Tru64 UNIX build error?

I spent some time looking at that issue.

- gnupg includes at least three different implementations of
   asprintf/vasprintf internally.

- Using a newer version of vasprintf and asprintf from libiberty
   (I took them out of gdb-6.2.1) worked to build gnupg.  I also needed
   to add a copy of ansidecl.h from libiberty.  asprintf.c and vasprintf.c
   also include libiberty.h, but it wasn't truly needed so I commented it

- even with the newer version of vasprintf from newer libiberty, there
   might be a problem.  Either the older or newer version of vasprintf.c
   will build with IRIX's cc, but I found strong warnings in stdarg.h that
   programs should not assume that va_list is writeable, and the
   implementation from libiberty does.
