The original mapgen (as well as the one distributed on charon)  was (is)
VERY MUCH K&R and should be capable of being compiled on the ancient
Sun compiler.

I did not comment on the original message because the problems
may lay with non-mapgen related idiosyncrosies, notably, foreign "make"
systems.  It's best I stay out of it.
