Hey Group;

A couple on month ago I was asking if anyone on this list could 
answer why I could not get jpilot (any rev.) to compile.
The answer came from my U of Tex Computer Sci. Grad. nephew.  He 
looks at the file otherconv.c and finds "strnlen"
and says "It is an inline function" and the problem was coming 
from SuSE 9.3's linker
:~> /usr/bin/ld --version
GNU ld version 20041220 (SuSE Linux)

He commented out using "/*G_INLINE_FUNC*/" the G_INLINE_FUNC and 
solved the problem.

Jpilot now compiles on a SuSE 9.3 stock compiler.  Better Yet - 
it also works.
