[Xymon] OpenBSD Compile Issue with logfetch

Hello all,

Not sure if anyone else has come across this or not, but I'm running into
an issue compiling the latest Xymon client (4.3.28) on OpenBSD 6.0.

I'm just compiling the client, since that's all I need for OpenBSD. So, I
am first running:

MAKE=gmake ./configure.client

I just selected all the defaults for the prompts for this example.

Then, when running 'gmake', I am getting a compile error when it gets to
the logfetch part:

gcc -g -O2 -Wall -Wno-unused -Wno-pointer-sign -D_REENTRANT
-I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE
-D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -DBSD -I/root/xymon-4.3.28/include -DCLIENTONLY=1 -o
logfetch logfetch.c ../lib/libxymonclient.a
logfetch.c: In function 'logdata':
logfetch.c:210: error: 'intmax_t' undeclared (first use in this function)
logfetch.c:210: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
logfetch.c:210: error: for each function it appears in.)
logfetch.c:210: error: expected ')' before 'bufsz'
gmake[1]: *** [Makefile:41: logfetch] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory '/root/xymon-4.3.28/client'
gmake: *** [build/Makefile.rules:77: client] Error 2

(If anyone wants the full 'gmake' output, let me know!)

If I go and comment out all the lines with logfetch in them in
client/Makefile, then everything compiles successfully and I can even do a
'gmake install' and everything works just fine (but only after commenting
out the logfetch lines in $XYMONHOME/bin/xymonclient.sh).

Honestly, this works fine for my case since I don't really need any
logfetch functionality working for this particular client anyways. But it'd
be nice if I didn't have to do all this commenting every time I want to
compile a new version of the Xymon client on OpenBSD.

Has anyone run into this issue and/or know what needs to be done to resolve

Thanks in advance for any assistance!!
