It still doesn't work, pvmd blows up on Linux.

Here are the tiny number of changes I made to the vanilla pvm 3.4.5
distribution, based on the changes in the Mandriva 2007.1 and FC6
src rpms (mostly).  It's only 18 modified files and mostly one or
two lines in each, and most of those are just adding <stdlib.h> and
the like:


This gives a clean compile on both Linux (gcc 4.1.2 or 4.1.1)
and Solaris (gcc 3.4.2).  It seems to run ok on Solaris but dumps
core on the 32bit X86 machines.  The old one, 3.4.4, still works
(aside from the blast library issue and the fact I can't link anything
to it. which started this whole mess), so I fell back to that for now.

Very frustrating when a package like this won't build from source.
