Hi,

	To disable Unix98 pty support in aterm 0.3.4 locate the following
in src/command.c
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
#if defined __GLIBC__ && __GLIBC__ >= 2
#  if defined __GLIBC_MINOR__ && __GLIBC_MINOR__ >= 1
#    define __lnx21__ 1
#  endif
#endif
----------------------------------------------------------------------
add #define __lnx21__ 0
right after the #endif statement.
