I, too, had this problem.  The cure I used was to simply include

	#undef TIOCGETC

somewhere around line 131, just after a similar declaration for XENIX.  

Everything compiled and worked fine after that.  

Now, if I could just switch the backspace and delete keys (not as
simple as simply restructuring keyboard-translate-table which switches
^h and del, not the keys themselves).  Suggestions?
