[ROOT] Beginner - difficulty compiling root (3.10.02) on debian

I'm having trouble compiling root from source. Any ideas on how I can progress 
would be gratefully received.


root 3.10.02

Dell PC Intel P-III 1GHz, 256Mb

Debian testing
kernel 2.4.24-1-686 (debian kernel image, kernel-headers-2.4.24-1-686
gcc 3.3.2 (Debian)
GNU Make version 3.79.1

I configure thus

$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-soversion
--enable-thread --disable-cern --disable-mysql --disable-sapdb
--disable-rfio --disable-pythia --disable-pythia6 --disable-venus 

(I'm interested in trying out the root/cint system for analysis that has 
nothing to do with supercolliders.)

then I enter

$ make

wait a long time (many messages)


then the process shudders to a halt

g++ -O1 -pipe -Wall -fPIC -Iinclude -DHAVE_CONFIG -D_REENTRANT  -DR__SRP_1_1 
-DR__SHADOWPW      -o rootd/src/rootd.o -c rootd/src/rootd.cxx
In file included from /usr/include/asm/sigcontext.h:4,
                 from /usr/include/bits/sigcontext.h:28,
                 from /usr/include/signal.h:326,
                 from rootd/src/rootd.cxx:297:
/usr/include/linux/compiler.h:17: warning: `__attribute_used__' redefined
/usr/include/sys/cdefs.h:195: warning: this is the location of the previous 
rootd/src/rootd.cxx: In function `void RootdAuthCleanup(const char *, int)':

rootd/src/rootd.cxx:463: implicit declaration of function `int setresuid(...)'
make: *** [rootd/src/rootd.o] Error 1

[the warnings about cdefs.h and compiler.h have already been emitted
about a thousand times by this point - are they important?]

Best regards,

Boris Barbour
