Description Richard Lloyd 2016-06-14 12:28:05 CEST
util/alloc.c defines and calls its own prealloc() function, but unfortunately, this function is in the HP-UX 11.31 C library and has a man page:

#include <unistd.h>
int prealloc(int fildes, off_t size);

prealloc() is used to preallocate space on a disk for faster storage

I would therefore suggest renaming unbound's prealloc() function to something else.

Hi Richard,

Fixed in code repository.  Thanks for the porting effort to HPUX :-)

Best regards, Wouter
