I have discovered and fixed nasty bug in configure script for gnokii.
Hopefully it didn't touch most of you -- if was present only when you
didn't give --without-x option to configure and X headers were not found
on the system or didn't need eny extra swhitches to gcc.

We did the following tests:
   CPPFLAGS="$CPPFLAGS -I$x_includes"
It means, that when $x_includes was empty CPPFLAGS was appended with '-I'.
It caused all further tests to be executed as:
   gcc [...] -I conftest.c [...]
which was the obvious bug as conftest.c was treated as the path for the
-I switch.

Now it is fixed. If you had problem with make saying about parse errors in
compat.h and many 'no' test at the end of the configure run, it should
disappear with the current CVS. I'm not sure at the moment how long did
the problem exist.

[The machine where the -current tarballs are created is affected by this
problem and that's why I discovered it. Normally I don't build there
gnokii, but as this is only Debian I have access to I wanted to test the
compilation there and the error occured.]
