The error was introduced in v1.8 of pwd.c by removing the line
#include <unistd.h>

so now the compiler no longer knows that getcwd() returns a char* and
defaults to int

I suspect strongly that the line should be put back in

here's what cvs log pwd.c shows:

revision 1.8
date: 2004/08/30 08:22:02; author: vladimir_prus; state: Exp; lines: +4 -1
Comeau fixes.
Patch from Larry Evans.
