IIRC, the errno problems are a result of newer versions of glibc. Maybe
the Mandrake distro you're using is (relatively) new? I came across
documentation on this (sorry, I don't remember where) a few months ago
when I was having the same problem. I believe the glibc developers
made attempts to be backward-compatible but it still introduced
problems with software that expected errno to be defined a certain way.
My solution was similar to yours, so I guess that's the way to go. :)
