[sword-devel] Re: [sword-support] Problems with compilation from sword cvs sources

the problem is that sword is being compiled with -Werror and there are still warnings. Try 
compiling sword without debug (run configure with --disable-debug) or if you want debug you 
need to remove lines 96 and 97 from configure.ac (those with -Werror) and run autoconf to 
regenerate configure.

hope this helps,
