Ultrix4.4 and 'strdup'?

Kenneth Jacker-2
I have begun installing the 2.0.1 version of 'octave' (with 'f2c') on a
DECstation/Ultrix-4.4 system.  After pre-compiling 'f2c' and running
'configure', I invoked 'gmake' requesting no debug support.

After a few compiles, I received the following messages:

        gcc  -o makedoc makedoc.o clib.o xmalloc.o -ltermcap
        collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Apparently 'configure' misses the fact that 'strdup' is unavailable.

I made an effort to "work around the problem", but made no progress
after about 30 minutes.  I also checked the mailing list archives, but
found no references to the problem.

Any ideas to help me continue will be most welcome!
