OK, working on the scrollback X crash problem, I found out what is going
on here for the record.

Get git st, build it, install it. Now get the scrollback patch, apply,
and build.

Then the build error hapens, as you already have a config.h that is not
updated from

rm config.h, and it builds fine from scratch. make clean doesn't
remove config.h (should it?).
