~ I don' t know it neither :(
~ I' ve modified one line in server/drivers/Makefile so
DEFS = -DHAVE_CONFIG -I. -I$(src_dir) -I../..

changes to

DEFS = -DHAVE_CONFIG -I. -I$(src_dir) -I../.. -DHAVE_PPDEV

~ but this is a manual change that must be automated thru configure

| 1998). On the other side, the current code works fine.
