It doesn't now - as I say, someone else patched the CVS around this bit and 
posted it here just as I was typing this part of this email in.

I've now removed the build directory I had for this, since I've got GNOME 
working again now.  I'm pretty sure (as I said before) that -D__EXTENSIONS__ was 
in there in 0.99.0.  I was planning to wait for 0.99.3 and then build a webpage 
showing what I did to compile it step-by-step and why I made the changes I did.  
If you think 0.99.3 is too far off to wait for me to do this, I'll do it all 
again with 0.99.2.

I did yesturday - this appears to have been fixed, as all compiled easily.

Yup, so I saw ;O)  Still doesn't actually *work* for me though =O(

Many thanks,
