OK, I feel like an idiot, but I can't get 3.1p1 to compile under Solaris

Older versions I've gotten set up, but can't with this latest one.

I have followed both the general directions and the directions in
contrib/solaris, and neither one works.  Since I have Solaris, here's
the output from the directions in contrib/solaris...

./configure --with-pam

configure:4318: checking sys/ttcompat.h usability
configure:4327: gcc -c -g -O2 -Wall -Wpointer-arith -Wno-uninitialized
ocal/include conftest.c >&5

/usr/include/sys/ttcompat.h:53: storage size of `t_new_ltchars' isn't
configure:4330: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:

cd contrib/solaris; ./

Any help you can give would be *GREATLY* appreciated!
