This I can't reproduce. The compiler I have is older than that.

The line in question is:
     static char llbuf[DIGBUFSIZE];
and system.h defines:
     #define DIGBUFSIZE ((int)(((sizeof(zlong) * 8) - 1) * 0.30103) + 3)

So quite why the compiler thinks it has a variable length array I
don't understand. Could you perhaps try substituting that in directly
and see if you can tweak it to work. The int cast might be causing the
problem in which case the * 0.30103 could perhaps be changed to * 30103
/ 100000. But I don't understand what the calculation is doing. Anyone
else have any idea?
