problem w/wraster.h on install

I was installing GNUStep on a Debian Linux (Fedora) ix86 system... I used the CVS version, and checked out the whole gnustep hierarchy.

I used the Startup/InstallGNUstep script to build/install.

Everything was fine until compiling the file core/back/Source/x11/ context.c.

There were a bunch of syntax errors that originated at the line:

extern void _wraster_change_filter(int type);

I traced these errors back to:

#include "x11/wraster.h"
This file is the culprit.

I did some research. It turns out I didn't have a modern libwraster installed on my system. From reading the newsgroups, it was my understanding that in this case, GNUstep includes its own wraster.h providing the necessary functionality. However, if I am right in my interpretation, there's something wrong with this file.

To remedy, I installed libwraster3-dev (using get-apt install), and then started the build/install over again. This time, it worked automagically.

So, I thought I would report this, in case anyone cares (and knows how) to do something to fix it.
