At nixos.org we're stabilizing a branch containing glibc-2.17. The problem is that the C type __swblk_t has been removed.

I made a quick fix by removing the (def-c-type __swblk_t) line from modules/bindings/glibc/linux.lisp, which made it build (clisp-2.49 with patched <bits/ipctypes.h> usage).

Is this a correct way? Are you going solve this problem as well?

    thank you for your bug report.
    the bug has been fixed in the source tree (mercurial/hg).
    you can either wait for the next release (recommended)
    or check out the current mercurial tree (see http://clisp.org\)
    and build CLISP from the sources (be advised that between
    releases the source tree is very unstable and may not even build
    on your platform).
