[Scribus] SUSE Linux Desktop libart package

Greetings, all.

I've given up trying to get Scribus working under Solaris, so I've put 
together a system running Sun's Java Desktop System, which is 
essentially Suse Linux Desktop. The configure of Scribus works well 
(I've learned a lot from the failed Solaris attempts), and I've been 
able to get to the make stage. The make fails, however, due to problems 
in the libart_lgpl headers. Specifically:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..  -I/usr/include/freetype2 
-I/usr/local/qt/include -I/usr/X11R6/include  -DQT_THREAD_SUPPORT  
-D_REENTRANT  -O2  -g -O2 -c `test -f 'art_kmisc.c' || echo './'`art_kmisc.c
In file included from art_kmisc.c:5:
/usr/local/include/libart_lgpl/art_svp_render_aa.h:38: parse error 
before '*' token
/usr/local/include/libart_lgpl/art_svp_render_aa.h:49: parse error 
before '*' token
`art_svp_render_aa' declared as function returning a function
/usr/local/include/libart_lgpl/art_svp_render_aa.h:55: parse error 
before "void"
make[3]: *** [art_kmisc.o] Error 1

I had installed the libart package, and things failed miserably, so I 
compiled 2.3.3. This works much better, but fails with the above. I've 
compiled libart on my Solaris system, but this segment of the header 
looks the same on each.

Does anyone have a working version of libart they would be willing to 
send my way? I'm really wanting to try out Scribus.
