There used to be _no_ support for either 770 or N800 (the existing 
tny-maemo-device was just a stub). So now we have N800 support,
but requiring the libconic breaks on 770. I hack it a bit to make
in work again, but to get the proper tny-maemo770-device will 
take a bit more time.

Within the next 10 days, the 770 version should compile again.
If that is not fast enough, I'd suggest to revert the N800 patch.

Well, I think it's a bug in 'bora'. The easiest way may to just
copy the m4 files.
