Initial Comment:
c++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../../autocfg -g -O2 -c
context.cpp  -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/context.lo
In file included from parser.h:45,
                 from guard.h:143,
                 from context.cpp:45:
/usr/include/expat.h:657: use of enum `XML_Status'
without previous declaration
/usr/include/expat.h:736: multiple definition of `enum
XML_Status'


when building sablotron.

Hand editing the file to place the def of enum
XML_Status before any references to it fixes the problem.

I've not checked the C89 standard yet, but Expat 1.95.6 is 
certainly dodgy in this case.  ;-(  The first draft of the C spec I 
found online certainly seemed to imply that any use of an 
incomplete enum is not allowed; I'm not likely to go out and 
buy a copy of the final spec to check further.  ;-)

As noted, this has been fixed in CVS.  Fixed the summary to 
better indicate what this report is about, and lowered the 
priority to get it out of the way for maintainers.

So far only gcc3.2 has complained.
Not sure if this is a bug, since most compilers accept it,
but it has been fixed in CVS already anyway.

Set resolution status to fixed, but leave open.
There may be other users who would report this as a bug
and I want them to see the open report instead of 
having duplicates created.

Assigned to Fred - since he may know more about
whether this truly is a bug.
