Your platform and the warnings you are seeing are unfortunately quite
common on ppc 970 machines, especially when the compiler and toolchain
is "biarch" -- able to produce 32 or 64 bit executables.
the PVFS configure script is testing for kernel features, and is
probably doing so with the compiler in 32 bit mode. Your kernel,
however, is 64 bit, and all the linux kernel header files are created
To fix this problem, add "-m64" to your CFLAGS and LDFLAGS and re-run
If you find you do not have the 64 bit versions of the berkely db,
that's ok. You only need those to make the pvfs server, so when you
configure for the kernel module you can pass --disable-server.
Let us know if that doesn't do the trick.
