OK, I hear where you are coming from, but that still doesn't help me get WiSPY tools up and running again.

How do I get round the error:

wispy_hw_dbx.o: In function `wispydbx_usb_open':
/home/pchristy/build/spectools/wispy_hw_dbx.c:692: undefined reference to `usb_debug'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [spectool_raw] Error 1

I don't have dbx hardware, so don't need this section of code. How do I stop it building?

Alternatively, as I'm not a developer, how do I stop it building with usb_debug enabled?

I'm afraid my serious programming days ended with 8-bit 6502s, and whilst I can usually make some kind of sense of "C", the more obscure aspects of it leave me baffled!
