Thank you for the suggestion, unfortunately, build of fails
with the same eror

Now, line 557 of agent/mibgroup/mibII/at.c contains
at =3D (struct arptab *) malloc(arptab_size * sizeof(struct arptab)=
My investigation showed that
struct arptab {
int at_flags;
char at_enaddr[6];
struct in_addr at_iaddr;
int if_index;
has another structure as a member. I wrote a short C program to
calculate the sizeof(struct arptab), and if I change the line to look
at =3D (struct arptab *) malloc(arptab_size * 20);
gcc gets pass this line but fails on
mibII/at.c:765: arithmetic on pointer to an incomplete type
which is
atab =3D &at[arptab_current++];

I have such a feeling that it could be as simple as providing a right
option for configure.
Does anybody have any ideas?
