Interesting, I thought glibc was announced, but not yet there.

Hmm, should be defined in sys/types.h

Adding 'typedef int register_t;' at line 794 should do the trick.

Well, at least the compiler _tries_ to make something out of it. Which
is better than freezing at the first sign of trouble. However, all the
errors and warnings seem to be related to the missing register_t.

Could you grep for register_t in the include directories? Maybe it is
defined in some other header.
