Dang, adding -mms-bitfields to CCFLAGS in the Makefile simply results in gcc: unrecognized option `-MMS-BITFIELDS'... hang on writing this makes me notice it might be case sensitive... yup. Case sentitive. Oooh some tests segfault :)

Yes - and it's a bit of a disappointment after all one has gone through just to get it to build. In addition to the segfaults I get a number of "Can't locate object method ..." errors scattered throughout when I run the tests verbosely - eg (from Gdk.t) Can't locate object method "get_xid" via package "Gtk2::Gdk::Window" at t\gdk.t line 108. And some of the "isa" tests report that the object being scrutinised is not of the expected type - which seems bizarre to me.
Still, the module is probably usable for most situations.
