A versioning problem caused an update error in

remove put_diary.c, put_diary.c.rej, and put_diary.c.orig

use the the attached file instead.

Please post you success or failure with LTP to me candrsn at mindspring.com
I will summarize.

Of Note
The demo macros   demop, democ, demo_ploy, and demo_contour
have all run successfully on my Redhat5.1/i486/gcc2.7.2.3 system.
(I don't know if that means the package is completely working)

for a Sun SS5 (sparc) Solaris 2.5.1, gcc2.7.2 system
  the Redhat defines are necessary for supppressing ioctl defines
  the headers <sys/dir.h> and <dirent.h> were missing from /usr/include
   I grabbed them from my Redhat system (not the best idea)
  the bigendian define was required

after all that (on a Sun SS5)
LTP started ok, all demo macros start ok but none completed.
The menuset_get function is not working correctly.
  (looks like a bigendian problem)

General notes

LTP is not stable and is being updated.
Specifically the color handling is in transition.
 8bit color works (not so good)
 24bit color has problems
 use -DDEBUGCOLOR to see what I mean

LTP will compile and run in either, but the 24bit display is sub optimal. 
LTP arch specific defines should probably go into an arch file and
be referenced by source/incl/globals.h

LTP only works with ascii vector files
LTP needs to work with GRASS library calls

Help is needed on this project!!!!!!!!!!
