Eggheads: Missing snprintf

When compiling eggdrop 1.6.12 on a DEC alpha machine, the linking stops:
% make

Making module objects for static linking...

building static.h...
............... done.

Making core eggdrop for static linking...

(This may take a while.  Go get some runts.)
---------- Yeah! that's the compiling, now the linking! ----------

Linking eggdrop... (static version)

cc -o ../eggdrop bg.o botcmd.o botmsg.o botnet.o chanprog.o cmds.o 
dcc.o  dccuti
l.o dns.o flags.o language.o main.o mem.o misc.o misc_file.o  modules.o 
net.o rf
c1459.o tcl.o tcldcc.o tclhash.o tclmisc.o  tcluser.o userent.o userrec.o 
o mod/*.o -L/mnt/db0/pangaea/web1/uwe_work/tcl8.3.4/unix -ltcl8.3 
-lm  md5/md5c.
o compat/*.o `cat mod/mod.xlibs`
*** Exit 1
*** Exit 1

During configure the missing "snprintf" is correctly detected.
Looking through the code I find that in compat.h the "snprintf" function is 
mapped to "egg_snprintf".
I think there is some c file in the whole eggdrop tree where "#include 
compat.c" is missing, so the redefinition is not working.
AND: if I use the bot ignoring this error he stops *not* everywhere where 
"snprintf" is used, only in two cases:
* during a .whois or .match
* and sometimes if lost/reconnected a bot

so I think the error should be there.
