Thanks. I applied the patch, and made it _farther_ in the compilation, but now
die in building os_mon:

gmake[2]: Entering directory `/home/rpettit/downloads/otp_src_R9B-1/lib/os_mon/c_src'

Stop in /home/rpettit/downloads/otp_src_R9B-1 (line 157 of Makefile).

Again, after extracting the tarball I did the following:

  prompt> ./configure
  prompt> make

This is on a machine running:

  OpenBSD 3.3 (GENERIC) #42: Tue Mar 25 16:50:16 MST 2003
  cpu0: Intel Pentium III (Coppermine) ("GenuineIntel" 686-class) 848 MHz

I apologize if this has already been covered. Going back now to check list
archives again...

Thanks for your help.
