Problem description

The Tru64 UNIX and HP-UX return types for the seekdir function are incompatible.

The seekdir function sets the position of the next readdir operation on the directory stream specified by the dir_pointer parameter to the position specified by the location parameter.

On Tru64 UNIX, the seekdir function prototype is as follows:

int     seekdir(DIR *, long)

On HP-UX, the seekdir function prototype is as follows:

void    seekdir(DIR *, long)
