#
# TuxMake supports the concept of runtimes.
# See https://docs.tuxmake.org/runtimes/, for that to work it requires

#
# To install tuxmake on your system globally:

# See https://docs.tuxmake.org/ for complete documentation.

Thanks for the reply Naresh. Do you have any ideas on how to resolve
this error? Pktgen already defines a couple of function prototypes
before they are declared and that seems to be the cause of this error
message.
