Thing is that if you have AfterSTep 1.8.* running - you will not be able to
use theme/MyStyles in aterm due to the differences in the libraries. That
is why 1.8
does not install headers. If you want to run aterm with MyStyle support -
you should
checkout CVS AfterStep using the date of aterm release, which is July 1. It
is important
that you don't use latest CVS AfterStep, as it is in the middle of rewrite
thus is somewhat broken. You should be able to get what you need using :

cvs -d co -D 2000-06-01

Compile it, install it , then redo ./configure for aterm
(don't forget to delete config.cahce first )
It should compile fine then.

I apologize for inconvinience, hopefully AS and aterm should come in sync
within next few month.
