Adding <errno.h> to the headers included in port-irix.c allows the build
to complete.

Using c99, there are only 92 warnings, whereas using cc there are 251.
A reasonable number of the 92 warnings are due to macro redefinition:

 14   Macro "_PATH_MAILDIR" (declared at line 359 of "defines.h") has an
  14   Macro "_PATH_BSHELL" (declared at line 322 of "defines.h") has an
   5   Macro "offsetof" (declared at line 491 of "defines.h") has an
   1   Macro "offsetof" (declared at line 491 of "../defines.h") has an

Also, moving -lgen from LIBS to SSHDLIBS would eliminate 10 additional

I haven't had time to deal with the regression tests yet. The protocol 1
tests always seem to be a problem with IRIX. (I reported this once quite
a while ago, but did not have the time to investigate.) In the past,
I've hacked the scripts to only test protocol 2, in which case
