So I see, I'm following the logs and I'm fiddling around to improve things.

I noticed. I was happy to see that both versions built fine.

I noticed these warnings and I'm working on them. The ftp.c warning was indeed
correct, but it complained on code we don't use (yet). The mprintf.c warning
is trickier to fix though.

The hostip.c warning puzzles me. Do you understand why it complains on the
pack_hostent function?

The web site autobuild stuff is in CVS, only a tad bit hard to find! ;-)

In the curl-www module's 'auto'-folder, there's the script that
produces the full "Build Summary" table and the showlog.cgi that displays a
single build's log.

I've already patched both of them to properly recognize and display the xlc
