Compiling now works. I compiled again into a .deb package and from svn.
Everything now works but there may be a problem with the .deb that I 
will try to explain.

I first installed it the '.deb' way (ie. making the deb and double click 
Rkward could be started from command line but not from menu. Menu had no 
I believe the reason is that /usr/local/bin/rkward does not exist.

Then I installed from source. Rkward could now be started from menu (and 
still from command line).
Menu still had no icon (Perhaps some setting is cached by the system or 
not overwritten as it should).

Then I deleted the menu because I thought if it was missing it would be 
reinstalled. It didn't help now the menu was completely missing and it 
didn't turn up when installing.
Finally I found the 'deleted' menu as an xdg-file in 
~/.local/share/applications/ as soon as I deleted it from there it 
turned up in the menu with an icon and working too.

Right now I think there may be a problem with the .deb (it does not 
appear to create /usr/local/bin/rkward).
This file was created by source install instead.
