Description of problem:

Hello there,

I have just tried to compile package gv-3.5.8-18 from Redhat 8.0

I got the following messages from the compiler.

cc: Info: process.c, line 291: In this statement, an array is being accessed outside the bounds specified for the array type. (subscrbounds)

Here is an untested patch to shut up the compiler.

./source/process.c.old ./source/process.c
*** ./source/process.c.old	Sun Dec 15 14:40:47 2002
--- ./source/process.c	Sun Dec 15 14:41:03 2002
*** 272,278 ****
     pid = fork();
     if (pid == 0) { /* child */
!       char *argv[3];
        char *c;
        INFMESSAGE(child process)
--- 272,278 ----
     pid = fork();
     if (pid == 0) { /* child */
!       char *argv[ 4];
        char *c;
        INFMESSAGE(child process)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile with Compaq C compiler or any C compiler that
does literal constant array index checking.
