Augh! I thought I stated this happened with ``afterstep-stable". (I hate it
when I leave important details out.) And, further, I didn't experience this
problem building AfterStep 1.8.10.

I wouldn't bother mentioning to this list that I had problems compiling
the afterstep-devel module. From a glance at the tree, it looks incomplete.
And to me ``development" means ``use at your own risk."
