Build issue



	I use KiCAD 5.99 as rolling release. For a few days, compilation aborts
with :

[ 32%] Building CXX object

	I have built ngspice library from source (git).

	To be sure that this issue is reproductible, I have rebuild ngspice
library and kicad from scratch with the same error.

	My workstation runs with Linux Debian/testing (up to date) with gcc
10.2.1. If I understand gcc error, compiler complains about mistake
between BOOL (that seems to be 'int') and bool, but I don't known C++
enough to fix it.

	Best regards,
