It compiles OK on my old Linux system (kernel 2.0.38, libc5), and passes
all tests, but I get a few errors with the install script:

Making install in po

make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Only the directories bin, libexec and share are installed. No .po files.
The resulting installation does work.
