Please do not assume that my ./configure script is described by the
FSF liturgy.  It is similar, but different.  There is something odd
there, because with --disable-IPv6 I see:
  checking for IPv6... disabled
instead of:
> checking for IPv6... no AF_INET6

What are the first half dozen errors and warnings?  Error recovery in
C compilers has always been problematic, because it's a hard problem.
Everything reported by a compiler after the first error is suspect.

Are there other problems compiling other DCC files?
Are the errors in .c files other than wlist.c?

wlist is merely a test program that dumps DCC client whitelist hash tables.

Does your system have some kind of threads?  What does the ./configure
script say about threads?  What is the complete `cc` command for wlist.c?

It may be impractical to find the problem by this sort of 20-questions,
particularly compared to a quick look via an ssh account.
