Dear Sir,

I try to install OpenSSH 3.7.1p1 on AIX 4.3.3, but I find the following
Would you please give some advices for me?

I try to configure the s/w by entering

../configure --prefix=OPENSSH_PATH \
--sysconfdir=OPENSSH_PATH/etc/openssh \
--without-pam \
--without-prngd-socket \
--without-prngd-port \
--with-tcp-wrappers=TCPWRAPPER_PATH \
--with-pid-dir=OPENSSH_PATH/var/run/openssh \
--with-ssl-dir=OPENSSL_PATH \

The following warning appears at the end.
WARNING: you are using the builtin random number collection
service. Please read WARNING.RNG and request that your OS
vendor includes kernel-based random number collection in
future versions of your OS.


Then, I try to make the s/w by entering


The following error shows at the end.
(cd openbsd-compat && make)
