OK, I simply dont have experience with fedora. I run with ubuntu 12.04, and
the comilers etc. that come with that. I build trunk several times a week
without problems, and of course also l10n40.

But anyhow it must work on other platforms as well.

The problem I had with VC6 was not access() as I thought, it was the std
namespace and a couple of class constructs I use.

It would be nice if we in general "upped" our compilers to the state of art.

I have now added a #include <unistd.h>, it seems ubuntu 12.04 includes that
through another file.

Now I have removed all warnings, so this is now one of the few modules
without warnings (actually that would be a good task for a new developer).

 R1523556 compiles without warnings on ubuntu 12.04 and windows7 (VC2012).

This would not be a good idea, the tool is specifically written so it is
indendent of all AOO libraries, thereby it can be placed anywhere in the
build stream. Using the URE libraries will as far as I can see add quite a
lot of dependencies.
