Hi list,

Tryinf to build jack-audio-connector-kit which requires libcap.  The libcap 
build fails with the following error:

make -C libcap all
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/SBo/libcap-2.11/libcap'
=> making cap_names.c from <linux/capability.h>
gcc -O2 _makenames.c -o _makenames
_makenames.c:10:28: error: sys/capability.h: No such file or directory
_makenames.c:25: error: invalid application of 'sizeof' to incomplete 
type 'struct __user_cap_data_struct'
make[1]: *** [_makenames] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/SBo/libcap-2.11/libcap'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Done building libcap.

I used the generic kernel as well as, both compiled to include the 
file system capabilities as described in the readme:

root at sundog:/boot# cat config- | grep CAPABILITIES
