Problem building OpenSSH on Cobalt Raq2i running standard Linux

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to build OpenSSH on my Cobalt Raq2i box which is running the
standard Linux installation with all patches installed.

I had no problems building OpenSSL v0.9.7b and it installed without
problems as well.

However, the OpenSSH build keeps failing at a certain point:

gcc -g -O2 -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wno-uninitialized -I. -I.
-I/usr/local/ssl/include -DSSHDIR=\"/usr/local/etc\"
-D_PATH_SSH_PIDDIR=\"/var/run\" -D_PATH_PRIVSEP_CHROOT_DIR=\"/var/empty\"
-DSSH_RAND_HELPER=\"/usr/local/libexec/ssh-rand-helper\" -DHAVE_CONFIG_H
-c monitor_fdpass.c
monitor_fdpass.c: In function `mm_send_fd':
monitor_fdpass.c:57: `SCM_RIGHTS' undeclared (first use this function)
monitor_fdpass.c:57: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
monitor_fdpass.c:57: for each function it appears in.) make: ***
[monitor_fdpass.o] Error 1

I'm trying to build v3.7.1p1 at the moment, and I have also tried v3.4p1
as well as several in between releases.

Has anyone else come across this problem? The version of gcc which comes
with Linux for the Raq2's is v2.7.2. I wouldn't expect that the be too
old, but it might be.  If the problem has nothing to do with OpenSSH I'll
need to look elsewhere...
