I had tried this before, and again this afternoon with the latest 
version of gwenhywfar-4.0.4, but can't get it to "make" under Ubuntu 10.10.

If you got them, how did you get around the errors below?


jeff at fx:/usr/local/src/aqbanking5/gwenhywfar-4.0.4$ sudo apt-get 
build-dep libgwenhywfar
libgwenhywfar47      libgwenhywfar47-dbg  libgwenhywfar47-dev  
jeff at fx:/usr/local/src/aqbanking5/gwenhywfar-4.0.4$ sudo apt-get 
build-dep libgwenhywfar47
