After 7 compiles with various things fooled with I got a working PennMUSH.
I am sending this so it gets into the archives incase someone wants to
compile this in the future:

My Solution:
  #1  patch /usr/include/src/select.h
          add #include<sys/types.h>
  #2  use smalloc for the memory allocation in the src/Makefile  
  #3  turn off DB compression.  remember to remove all .Zs from    
      your .cnf and .restart files in your game directory. And
      don't forget to decompress your DBS in data/
  #4 in your game directory (the one with your .cnf and .restart files)
     type the following to create this file if it doesn't exist.
     'touch access.cnf'

Thats it... Maybe this should be a port????
