I've just been doing the same thing.  Same system and machine includes,
and found one major problem and another minor one.  First, it seems that
in XENIX there is a ioctl defined (termio.h I think) that conflicts with
one of theirs (TIOCGETC).  There is a #ifdef XENIX that undefines it, but
now these definitions are included with UNIX also.  The minor problem was
that cpp didn't seem to be able to handle a define name with a dollar
sign ($) in it.

This is the diff for the second minor problem:
< #ifndef RAB$C_BID
> /*#ifndef RAB$C_BID*/
> #ifndef RABC_BID /* for some reason, the $ confuses cpp */

And this for the first one which is a stopper:
> /* we need this because termio.h has this defined for Xenix compatibility */
> #undef TIOCGETC  /* Avoid confusing some conditionals that test this.  */

And throughout I had to do this type of thing so cpp wouldn't complain:
< #endif HPUX
> #endif /* HPUX */

At present it's dumping core all over the place, so I'm about to recompile
fns.c without the optimizer as someone elso suggested.
