Irix 6.2 Build

I'm trying to build the VNC server on an Irix 6.2 System.  I applied the
appropriate patch from the Contributions area, but one of the two changes
failed, so edited the appropriate file by hand.  Then, I successfully
compiled vncpassword, vncviewer, etc.  Finally, I tried to build Xvnc
which failed and I'm unsure why.  

Any help and/or binaries would be appreciated.  Compiler output below.

Here is the patch error:

Then I compiled vncviewer, vncpassword, and they seemed to compile

To build Xvnc, do "cd Xvnc", followed by "make World"

Finally, I tried to build Xvnc which died with this error:

I hope you checked the configuration parameters in ./config/cf
to see if you need to pass BOOTSTRAPCFLAGS.
