Subject: Fix for tcsh

Good day,

I just want to know what would be right approach to fixing the compile
error in tcsh.

I use the source code at

I get the following error:
gcc -c -g -O2 -I. -I. -D_PATH_TCSHELL='"/usr/local/bin/tcsh"'    sh.proc.c
sh.proc.c: In function 'pchild':
sh.proc.c:155:16: error: storage size of 'w' isn't known
make: *** [sh.proc.o] Error 1

Those lines are:

#ifdef BSDWAIT
    union wait w;
#else /* !BSDWAIT */
    int     w;
#endif /* !BSDWAIT */

If I just use

//#ifdef BSDWAIT
//    union wait w;
//#else /* !BSDWAIT */
    int     w;
//#endif /* !BSDWAIT */

it compiles and works (for months now without an issue).

My question really is what should the proper "ifdef" be if I want to send
the fix to the tcsh maintainers ?
