I'm trying to compile ssh-1.2.30 on an LFS-2.4.2 build with kernel

Here is the error message:

 ssh-1.2.30# make
gcc -pipe -c -I.  -I./gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2 -I./zlib-1.0.4 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H  -DHOST

login.c:469: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
login.c:469: for each function it appears in.)
make: *** [login.o] Error 1

I installed SSH on LFS-2.3.7 build with kernel-2.2.16 with no problem.  I
see that LFS-2.4.2 has a newer shadow password package.  Has anyone
installed SSH-1.2.30 on LFS-2.4.2? Any thoughts appreciated!!
