Re: Problems compiling At-spi

Hi Adam:

The warnings about Xevie are not a problem yet - they are indicative of
a problem with the X server's headers, but it's nonfatal.

Your problem is that you need to upgrade ATK as well as AT-SPI.  I'll
fix at-spi's file to indicate the dependency now.

Best regards,
