|No delete? Ohno!

I have a new computer at work, and I'm slowly installing all the various things I want on it. (I've been given a KVM switch also, which is super-fantastic, because it means I can keep working on my old machine while I'm configuring the new one.)|
One of the packages I
like am dependent on is the athena 'delete' package, which gives you a reversible version of 'rm'.
It doesn't want to compile on the new machine; it complains that
extern char* malloc in one of the header files has a conflicting return type.
Help me, Intarwebs! You're my only hope! What should I do?
- Try to fix/port the C code? (I'm guessing it's a 64-bit vs 32-bit kind of thing, likely to go rapidly out of my depth.)
- Surf the web for a good replacement? (No luck so far...)
- Write some perl/shell scripts with the same behavior?
- Something else entirely?
EDIT: I had assumed there wouldn't be any RPMs for it (I think the last time I looked there weren't any), but at quirkstreet's suggestion, I looked and google found some! Everything is now happy. Thanks, Pete!
