Please get a decent mail program. I'm not going to reply anymore to garbled 
messages like the above. I'm talking about the text part of your email, 
completely ignoring the HTML part.

The cleaned-up error was:
dbus-sysdeps-pthread.c:262: error: storage size of "end_time" isn't known

  struct timespec end_time;

Which indicates that "timespec" was only forward-declared. It should come from 
time.h, but that file only includes sys/time.h. Can you add #include <time.h> 
to the top of the file and check if this works?
