Re: Build problems - unistd.h

On that advice, I now get a new error:

/home/Scott/downloads/dbus-glib-0.73/dbus/dbus-binding-tool-glib.c:800: undefine
d reference to `_g_file_open_tmp_utf8'

This is nearly identical to the error I got when commenting out line
108 of unistd.h:

/home/Scott/downloads/dbus-glib-0.73/dbus/dbus-binding-tool-glib.c:799: undefine
d reference to `_g_file_open_tmp_utf8'

Note that the errors differ only in their line numbers. Whatever does it mean?

You could try simply inserting '#undef pipe' before '#include <unistd.h>'.
