Trouble compiling wvdial

Hi guys,

I had quite a bit of trouble compiling wvstreams a couple of days ago. (Just 
to give you an idea of my setup - gcc-3.2.2 w/ glibc-2.31). I found a gcc-3.2 
patch through google (it was a couple of kb) but it didn't make any 

I then found this patch:

I can compile wvstreams successfully with that, but then I am unable to 
compile wvdial - here is the error:

/usr/include/wvstreams/wvconf.h:66: warning: implicit typename is deprecated,
   please see the documentation for details
g++   -o wvdial wvdial.o wvdial.a  -L../wvstreams -lwvutils -lwvstreams
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.2.2/../../../ undefined 
reference to `crypt'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [wvdial] Error 1
make: *** [src] Error 2

I would really appreciate some help on this one - I'm desperately waiting to 
be able to use my new GNOME 2.2 desktop on the internet :)
