I'm new to wayland, I do git clone from repo, and configure and build, I 
got these error message:
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/media/sda6/softrepo/freedesktop/wayland'
Making all in wayland

I think the reason is in wayland/wayland-server-protocol.h,
extern const struct wl_interface wl_display_interface;
struct wl_display_interface {...}
Which had double define wl_display_interface, one as var and one as type,
which confuse my gcc(verson 4.4.5), should there be a option to let gcc 
distinction them?
Or something else wrong, or the scanner?

Best Regards!
