Did a fresh checkout from subversion into a clean directory.  I'm 
getting the following error during make.

Seems like a completely different error to me and since I figured I 
caused enough trouble already, I haven't done anything to fix this one.

configure options are --enable-compile-warnings --enable-ofx
