Bad form to respond to my own message, but I have the following  
additional information:

To fix the error in compilation in parse.c, I think that the ifndef  
needs to be changed to an ifdef - line 47 in parse.c needs to be:

> # include "emul/fnmatch.h"
> #endif /* HAVE_FNMATCH */

instead of:
> #ifndef HAVE_FNMATCH
> # include "emul/fnmatch.h"
> #endif /* HAVE_FNMATCH */

In addition, there is an undefined symbol "_PATH_DEVNULL", which  
isn't mentioned anywhere else in the source code - (perhaps a missing  
autoconf change?) on line 966 in sudo.c.

After changing that to be "/dev/null", sudo compiles fine.

However, visudo fails to compile, because of two missing symbols,  
both of which are defined in sudo.c.

Any ideas on how to get visudo to compile as well?
