Dude, you have been answering to an 8 year old comment. It is not unreasonable to asume, that the link was valid a few years ago, dont you think?

Re: Compilation of net-tools
I inserted a semi-colon at line 108 of your file to get past a compile error.

Now I'm stuck at: (while compiling nettools 1.60)
cc -D_GNU_SOURCE -O2 -Wall -g -I. -idirafter ./include/ -Ilib -I/home/dpace/net-tools-1.60 -idirafter /home/dpace/net-tools-1.60/include -c -o x25_sr.o x25_sr.c
x25_sr.c: In function 'X25_setroute':
x25_sr.c:80: error: 'x25_address' undeclared (first use in this function)
x25_sr.c:80: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
x25_sr.c:80: error: for each function it appears in.)

Compilation of net-tools
I have an lfs system which was compiled myself. I do *not* claim that this is a clean environment to compile this package. I, nevertheless, had problems with /usr/include/linux/route.h. I compiled with C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/src/linux-2.6.x/include because i used linux-libc-headers. I noted in net-tools-1.60/lib/inet_sr.c the comment /* this is really broken */ after #include <linux/route.h>.

It failed to install, even with a number of patches i found on the internet. I was able to fix it by commenting out the #include <linux/route.h> and, after all other includes pasting struct rtentry {... as found in <linux/route.h>. This is apparently the only dependency on the linux/route.h file. This is not a great way to fix this problem, but it does work when all else fails.
