Not really sure. It seems to me that you managed to build libAfterImage 
without libAfterBase headers, in which case you should have gotten 
couple warning at compile time, as well as the above error message.

libAfterImage has abbreviated version of libAfterBase included to enable 
stand alone compilation, and it was missing couple macros, which caused 
them to be treated as functions, thus resulting in above error. I've 
fixed that part, but you still need to check why libAfterImage does not 
use libAfterBase headers.
