Hey Henning!

I will definitely submit a small-ish patch for fixing these issues. I
will also re-test to make sure that this was not a problem specifically
related to my particular build environment.

Thanks for your work correcting the previous "bad interface problem".
Like I said, it was a really minor correction but one that people would
probably run into if they are using a setup similar to ours. :-)

Thanks again. I will email soon!
