I've got two errors during compilation of MySQL GUI Tools. First one is missing stdio.h include in common/library/generic-canvas/source/myx_gc_variant.cpp. In this file functions like sprtinf are used but not defined (their definition is in missing stdio.h file)

Second error is complaining about conversion from const char* to char*.

Both errors were pretty easy to fix and both of them were probably related to usage of gcc 4.4 or glibc 2.10.1. Patch attached, shouldn't do any harm to people using older versions of gcc/glibc

How to repeat:
Try to compile MySQL-Gui-Tools with probably quite new development tools like gcc4.4 or glibc2.10.1

Suggested fix:

Many thanks for writing a bug report. We are on the way to implement full functionality of MySQL GUI Tools into MySQL Workbench. Unfortunately you are using an unsupported platform. More informations about supported platforms you will find here:

Reopening and assigning it to Mike Lischke for inclusion. Mike, this is a trivial fix, can you please apply it?
