#29 kwave-0.7.11 does not compile with ext. audiofile >0.2.3

compiling (22)

I can confirm that kwave-0.7.11 does not compile, using system's host libaudiofile, if version of this library is > 0.2.3

The error is:

If i've installed audiofile-0.2.3 instead (or using internal libaudiofile, that's the same version), build process works well.

I think that would be better fixing this issue, because the latest stable version from several time of audiofile (and the only available in Gentoo, my own Linux distro) is 0.2.6.

Tell me if you need more info :)

    I wonder, because I am also using Gentoo, but for i686 only (32 bit) and here it works. It is also strange that it doesn't find the functions af_virtual_file_new and afOpenVirtualFile, because there are explicit checks in the cmake files!? (see cmake/KwaveLibaudiofileSupport.cmake). It should not happen that the cmake check passes and then later the functions vanished!? Can you please provide the complete cmake output?
