Not easily it would seem.  If this keeps up I will need to install
Slackware on a VM here, but that will take a few days when downloads are
included and also would require me to have a current copy of your build

You are correct; each change does not break Debian, but instead seems to
make the build process more robust.

Generally what I do is look for a class name at the failing line number,
then search the entire Trinity source directory for
<classname>::<classname>, where <classname> is the class name you found
referenced in the failing file.  When I find it, I look for a .h header
file with the same name, then include that in the failing file.

Hope this helps!
