Fix build with clang

I don't see any problems with the patch, so I'd r+ it. But I think it makes sense to get opinion from objc guys. Steven, could you look please?

Fix build with clang

I've never used clang, and know very little about it.  So I'm puzzled
that you need to make these changes.  But I can't say it's wrong to do

In any case none of these changes should cause harm, so I'm happy to
r+ this patch.

One thing worth mentioning:  'Class' is defined (in exactly the same
way) in /usr/include/objc/runtime.h, which you could include in
nsAccessibleWrap.h using "#include <objc/runtime.h>" or "#import
<objc/runtime.h>".  Have you tried either of these?  If they work, it
might be better than defining Class yourself.

Sounds like clang still has some bugs :-)

One more thing:  You should probably add a comment saying what changes you've made, and why you made them (i.e. for compatibility with clang).
Finally, you probably should try to find someone who knows both Objective-C and clang.  I can't understand why these would be the only changes needed to get clang to build the whole tree.

Patch using #include instead of typedef

isEqualToString is defined in
- (BOOL)isEqualToString:(NSString *)aString;

I don't know obj-c++, but I am surprised that gcc is OK with passing a "const NSString *" to it.

The author name in the patch seems to be corrupt. There's a character 0x81 after the Ã, and the last name looks like "Espíndola" which doesn't seem right.

I could probably fix it up, but some people are sensitive about such things :-).
ah, it is the traditional UTF-8 X iso8859-1 issue. I once had a conference badge with that :-)

Any idea what is corrupting it?

In any case, assuming bugzilla gets this box correct, by name is
Rafael Ávila de Epíndola
or with the acutes removed
Rafael Avila de Espindola
Bugzilla does get it correct, but I already did my pushes for the day...

Well, not entirely.  Bugzilla uses UTF-8 for comments, but not for patches (see bug 633569)

The fixes needed in order to build with clang are visible in the hg for the latest beta build (i.e. if ([attribute isEqualToString: (NSString*) kTopLevelUIElementAttribute]) in
Setting this as Verified for Firefox 6 Beta.
