7.55.1 fails to build on Mac OS X PowerPC, expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘curl_off_t’ #1797
I did this
I expected the following
Mac OS X 10.5.8 PowerPC
Here is a log of the failure:
The errors begin with:
I suspect #1774 caused this. 7.55.0 built successfully on the same system.
I'm not in front of a PowerPC system right now, but sources on the Internet show that a PowerPC Mac running Mac OS X 10.4 defines
