    1. change mktemp on mkstemp due to gcc-3.1 assumes usage of mktemp as error

Why does gcc do that?  Seems wrong.  I doubt mkstemp is as portable as mktemp.

well, that's the build error:
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I../lib -I../intl -DLOCALEDIR=\"/usr/local/share/locale\" -g -O2 -c `test -f texindex.c || echo './'`texindex.c
gcc  -g -O2   -o texindex  texindex.o ../lib/libtxi.a
/usr/bin/ld: Dwarf Error: Invalid or unhandled FORM value: 14.
texindex.o: In function `main':
/home/lb/Soft/texinfo-4.2/util/texindex.c:184: the use of `mktemp' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
i've decided that was gcc-3.1 specific thing because gcc-3.0.4 works fine with this mktemp giving the "dangerous" message as warning. i've search the gcc changelog on this issue but found nothing.

    2. ospeed variable conflicts with ncurces from ASP Linux

Maybe so, but we have to define/declare ospeed for other systems (that
use termcap, according to the ancient comment there).  configure already
checkes for <ncurses/termcap.h> and <termcap.h>, and if either is found,
it doesn't try to declare ospeed and the other termcap variables
itself.  Doesn't "ASP Linux" provide those header files?

the package ncurces provides. it's placed in  /usr/include/ncurses/termcap.h
but it was'nt found by configure script:
============= config.h
/* Define to 1 if you have the <ncurses/termcap.h> header file. */
that's the error message:
gcc -g -O2 -o ginfo dir.o display.o dribble.o echo-area.o filesys.o footnotes.o gc.o indices.o info-utils.o info.o infodoc.o infomap.o m-x.o man.o nodemenu.o nodes.o search.o session.o signals.o terminal.o tilde.o variables.o window.o doc.o key.o ../lib/libtxi.a -lncurses /usr/bin/ld: Warning: size of symbol `ospeed' changed from 2 to 4 in /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.1/../../../libncurses.so
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

but, after checking for ncurses/termcap.h i suppose this name conflict is because the header not used.

3. when creating $infopath/dir there's no comma after node name, so info can't find top node

Hmm, the comma should not be required as far as I know.  I'll look into
this more.

i've checked the problem a bit more carefully. this error appears if the first character after the node name isn't comma or tab. in default compilation it's space char. check the sample dir in attach -- i have it unworking.


File: dir,      Node: Top
