I did some checking and it appears that the problem was introduced in Rev 1.49 of configure.ac

In that revision AC_PROG_CC_STDC was added on line 77

I commented out that line in the HEAD revision (line 81) and ./gnubg --tty did come up as expected.

The commit message is:

revision 1.49
date: 2015-07-04 16:51:33 -0400; author: plm; state: Exp; lines: +2 -2; commitid: UehJtF6XUb2hH0sy;
Compile as C99

I am not sure if there is much else I can do and be accurate...

Thanks for all the suggestions.

I was in an airport and did not think beyond the initial problem...

I should have tried the latest release tag... (which works fine btw)

I updated back to the release and the following files changed...

I'll investigate this weekend if I have a chance.

It appears the problem is related to a change since 1.05.000 was
released. It appears the code at the head of CVS is causing some issue.
The temproary work around would be to take out release 1_05_000 soruce
code from CVS with a command like:

cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gnubg co -r
release-1_05_000 gnubg

The '-r release-1_05_000' after 'co' specifies that we want to take the
code out that is associated with the tag release-1_05_000 (The code for
the last official release).
