This isn't what you want to do.  This is a preprocessor declaration,
making any instance of "ulong" resolve (literally) to the number 1.[1]  In
which case, a line such as "ulong htonl(u_long hostlong);" would resolve
to "1 htonl(u_long hostlong);" which doesn't make sense.  Anyway, in
sysdep.h find the "ulong htonl(u_long hostlong);" line and change it to

  u_long htonl(u_long hostlong);

or to,

  unsigned long htonl(unsigned long hostlong);

whichever works for you.


[1] My recommendation is to pick up a remedial book on C.  A decent one
    should cover such topics in a much more clean manner than any
    discussion on this list could hope to.
