Thanks for the help. Here's the deal. On my Solaris 8 system, the Xlibint.h
file has ifdef's defined for GetReq, GetReqExtra, GetResReq, and
GetEmptyReq. For the first three, these look something like:

#ifdef _LP64
#define GetResReq(name, rid, req) \
#else  /* _LP64 */
#if (defined(__STDC__) && !defined(UNIXCPP)) || defined(ANSICPP)
#define GetResReq(name, rid, req) \
#define GetResReq(name, rid, req) \
#endif /* _LP64 */

However, the __STDC__ define for GetEmptyReq looks like:

#if (__STDC__ && !defined(UNIXCPP)) || defined(ANSICPP)

Which caused the compile to fail. If I change this to match the others, the
code compiles fine.

I'm off to look for patches to figure out if this has been fixed yet on

Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction.
