# Will fail with: Error regarding __jmpbuf.

vi . /src/pngsize.c

# Find this section of the code:

/* this is to make compile on aix work since they seem to define jmpbuf
to be _jmpbuf which breaks compilation */

# Then add the following three lines:

#ifdef jmpbuf
#undef jmpbuf


# Will fail again with:
