[wdiff-bugs] wdiff-0.6.1 build problems

I've successfully built, validated, and installed wdiff-0.6.1 on more
than 25 flavors of Unix, but there are three systems for which the
builds failed.  In each case, simple workarounds produced success.

FreeBSD 8.0 and OSF/1 4.0 Alpha:  configure sets


in the Makefile, but no such library exists.  I overrode it with

        make LIBS=-ltermcap                     # on FreeBSD
        make LIBS='-ltermcap -lsnprintf'        # on OSF/1

On Solaris 7 SPARC, compilation with cc fails like this:

        cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I..  -DDEFAULT_TEXT_DOMAIN=\"wdiff-gnulib\"
        -I../intl -I/usr/local/include  -I/usr/local/include -c localcharset.c
        "./getopt.h", line 31: empty file name
        cc: acomp failed for localcharset.c

I did a fresh build using gcc-2.95.3 (the last gcc version that builds
on that O/S), and that solved the problem.
