AUdacity Bug

Kia ora

I am having problems with audacity on Hardy Heron.  I cannot get it to
play sound.

That is not why I am emailing though.  I am compiling from source to
have a crack at making it work.

apt-get source audacity

It would not compile.  

In import/ImportMP3.cpp in GetMP3ImportPlugin the line 

new UnusableImportPlugin(DESC, wxArrayString(wxSIZEOF(exts), exts));

around line 49

fails because DESC and wxSIZEOF are both undefined.

wxSIZEOF should be WXSIZEOF and DESC is defined later in the file 

#define DESC _("MP3 files")

so needs to be moved to *before* this line.  Then it compiles.

I hope this helps. Did seem too simple to bother with a patch!
