I am trying to install BLAST on a IBM RS/6000.

I already have succeed in installing ncbitools (using the 370 confi
guration), gish and dfa.

So, I am trying to build blast but make all generates a strange

# make all

ln -s ../GISH .

   smode, int qmode, int lockfile, int verbose));
23 extern int shm_sendto PROTO((char *filename, int sig));
24 extern int shm_sendtokey PROTO((key_t key, int sig));
26  #endif /* !__SHMUTIL_H__ */

I don't understand what happens.

Please mail-me if you have an idea or if you already have installed
BLAST on a RS6K.
