If you're tring to compile VASL against the trunk as-is, that can't
possibly work, because the trunk no longer contains some things which 
VASL uses. If all you want is for VASL to compile, then you could do
that by commenting out the offending code---but presumably that code is
not intended to be a no-op, so you won't produce a program which works
properly this way, just one that compiles.

Alternatively, I believe that VASL will compile against the 3.1 branch
of VASSAL without modification. However, this is only a short-term
solution. Someone will eventually need to update the VASL code to work
with the trunk.
