I also am running ppp 2.3.2 under glibc 2.0.6pre4, it required a bit of
tweaking to compile, though. What I did was copy socket.h to the compile
directory and make sys-linux.c include that copy, then I commented out
where socket.h included sockbits.h, and imported the one thing that was
needed out of sockbits.h into the socket.h (I forget which one it was,
but if you try to compile, it'll complain about that and you can just
move it.), and presto... It worked, albeit with many warnings.
