You will also have to change the defines of both door_field (whatever
file it is in) to be a const char *door_field, and the define for dirs to
be a const as well (it was changed in bpl14)  This would have been a good
time to use that version tracker for an #if.....that is if it had been
changed in bpl14 :P

Ok, that's what I did to make these work.  In fact, there's an awful lot
that needs to be done to make it work, but this is just what I can
remember that I did (it all has to do with the re-working of the pointers
in bpl 14 over 13)

Not sure about that....
