Ok. I have added prototypes for all the functions that may miss on
some platforms now. The prototypes are added to config.h by configure
automatically. config.h is (or at least should be) included by every
source file so I think that's the right place.

Thanks for mentioning that one. There is indeed some confusion about
"Color patterns". However, something seems to be wrong with your
patch. Is it reversed? Originally, test.conf and the description used
the singular while test_picture_list used plural. So even if you put
"Color pattern" in test.conf there shouldn't be a segfault.

Anyway, I changed the files to use singular "Color pattern" everywhere.

The crash is a different (known) problem: input from the config file
isn't checked. It's on the todo list, but that requires more than a

I've also commited the bh and coolscan fixes.
