Sorry about such a long delay in responding.

Initial question can be found here:-

I have taken some time to try to learn C.  I've been much more of a ksh script chap until now and after frazzling my brain a little, I probably will remain so.  But in any case, I have not found either suggestion to lead me in the right way to a resolution - probably because I'm still to new to C and haven't learn from enough mistakes yet.

I have checked that the time.h library is in the exported LIBPATH & LD_LIBRARY_PATH (as we're on SCO) which is I think that is what was suggested in http://www.sudo.ws/pipermail/sudo-users/2007-October/003354.html 

Reply http://www.sudo.ws/pipermail/sudo-users/2007-October/003357.html Commenting out the HAVE_TIMESPEC statement in config.h (after running configure) made it go wrong much earlier with the following:-

	        gcc -c -I. -I.  -O2 -D_PATH_SUDOERS=\"/etc/sudoers\" -D_PATH_SUDOERS_TMP=\"/etc/sudoers.tmp\" -DSUDOERS_UID=0 -DSUDOERS_GID=0 -DSUDOERS_MODE=0440  check.c
	In file included from check.c:60:
	emul/timespec.h:22: redefinition of `struct timespec'
	*** Error code 1 (bu21)
	UX:make: ERROR: fatal error.

Sorry for being a nuisance,
