Alien Bob's gecko-mediaplayer buildscript fails...

I noticed the newest version of gecko-mediaplayer is out (0.9.9) so I downloaded Alien Bob's slackbuild and just changed the version number but I am getting an error during ./configure...

from error log...

Usually this means the macro was only invoked conditionally.

Any Ideas appreciated. Thanks

Grab this patch -

After applying the patch, force an autoreconf, configure, make ...
BOLD lines are added to the SlackBuild.

chown -R root:root .
chmod -R u+w,go+r-w,a-s .
patch -Np1 -i $SRCDIR/patch.patch
autoreconf -fi
echo Building ...

I uploaded the patch.patch and SlackBuild.
