Take these lines from embedvar.h

[jay@​localhost perl5.005_60]$ grep dirty embedvar.h |grep define
#define PL_dirty (my_perl->Tdirty)
#define PL_dirty (PERL_GET_INTERP->Tdirty)
#define PL_Tdirty PL_dirty
#define PL_dirty (thr->Tdirty)
#define dirty PL_dirty

The last line is my main concern. Any sources using anything with
"dirty" as a name will be redefined as (thr->Tdirty). This does happen
in the attempt to compile the latest Gtk module, 0.5121 (it redefines
int dirty under the struct definition of GnomeIconList in

this effects the latest of the developer perl (perl 5.005_60) as of
this writing and perl 5.005_02. (I do not have perl5.005_03 installed to
see if it has the same problem. A temporary solution for those who want
to compile the Gtk module is obviously to comment the #define dirty
line, however I have no permanent solution.
