I added one line of garbage:

	#ifdef HAVE_HFST
	if (dictionary.getMorBackend() == "hfst") {
		return new HfstAnalyzer(dictionary.getMorPath());


morphology/AnalyzerFactory.cpp:48: error: ‘garbage’ was not declared in this scope
morphology/AnalyzerFactory.cpp:49: error: expected `;' before ‘}’ token
make[3]: *** [morphology/AnalyzerFactory.lo] Error 1

That is, without this garbage it seems to compile fine including the hfst backend. I'm puzzled.
