Compiling with just a compiler binary in your may work, but that is not a supported configuration for general use (a.o. reasons, because of the problem you have right now). Please always start from a *full* installation of the latest official release before reporting build problems. In 99.9% of the cases it solves all problems.

Sorry Jonas, but I always compile two versions (fixes_2_4 and trunk)
using this script:

Always worked and some people used this script with success too.
How I compiled before without having to compile the file data2inc?

> There is no 2.6.0 release yet. And the reason for your compilation error is that the time stamps on some include files in your fixes_2_6 branch are older than the files they are generated from. This can happen with a fresh svn checkout depending on the order in which files are downloaded and how much time passes in the mean time.

The sources are fresh.
So, I will 'clean up' the sources and to try again...
