scope_chain.cpp has no definition of ScopeChainLink::next or ::object; 
they are defined (as inline) in JSVariableObject.h, as above, and as per 
the comment in scope_chain.h.

I added '#include "JSVariableObject.h"' to scope_chain.cpp and had no 
problems, so I committed that (as the code was otherwise quite clearly 
broken; that was also before I saw this thread). If that's not the 
correct solution, we need to figure out what is.

Andrew: I added it /last/, please svn up and see if you're still having 
issues, if yes then it was probably order-of-includes (and I guess I 
lucked out getting it right).

Please do not quote my e-mail address unobfuscated in message bodies.
Person A: It's an ISO standard.
Person B: ...And that means what?
