Agreed again about making it at least compile. But that's not the issue
I was talking about. My concern is packagers like Gerald that may be building
suboptimal packages because they don't use the latest development headers.

Ah, now you're talking. But for some reason I couldn't find those lines in my

I don't think lcms is shipped with FreeBSD is it? It's in the ports
collection. I'm no FreeBSD expert so correct me if I'm wrong.

Last time I checked there was an lcms version 1.13 in FreeBSD ports.
