I can't build Bro on my Linux box.

[dom at tility bro-1.1]$ uname -a
Linux tility.canterburysoftware.com 2.4.22-10mdk #1 Thu Sep 18 12:30:58 
CEST 2003 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

Trying to build bro-1.1 I get this:

checking for library containing inet_aton... none required
checking for tgetnum in -ltermcap... no
checking for termcap in /usr/lib{64}/termcap/... no
configure: error: libtermcap not found in default paths nor 

Trying to build bro-0.9a11 I get this

checking for long long... yes
checking size of long long... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof 
(long long), 77

I get different problems on my NetBSD box.
