[fpc-devel]fpgtk problem

I finally decided to make an attmept at compiling fpc from the CVS sources.
(fixes branch, 2003-04-01)

Everything went smooth, except for one small problem:

  fpgtk.pp(3032,57) Error: Illegal parameter list

The code in question is this:

  procedure TFPgtkObject.SignalEmit (aName:string; Args:array of const);
    gtk_signal_emit_by_name (TheGtkObject, pgchar(aName), Args); 

Apparently the compiler is getting confused about exactly what
a "const" is, when Args is passed from a regular function to a 
cdecl function.

At any rate, changing the declaration to this:

  procedure TFPgtkObject.SignalEmit (aName:string; Args:array of TVarRec);

 - seems to solve (or at least hide) the problem.
