We'll need lines 710 of 718 to resolve these warnings.  Note that they're
warnings -- they're not errors.  This means modify.c compiled fine, but
the compiler had a little nitpick about some code in modify.c.  These may
or may not manifest as run-time errors, but they usually do, so you should
resolve them.

Eh, there's a problem in your Makefile.  For some reason there's a
"conf.h" thrown in on the line to compile color.c.  Find something that
looks like,

    color.o: color.c conf.h sysdep.h blah blah blah
            $(CC) -c $(CFLAGS) color.c

Make sure there's not a "conf.h" after the second color.c.  Also, when
you're changing a Makefile, ensure that your editor doesn't replace tabs
with spaces.  The line indented 8 spaces (in this mailing) after the
"color.o:" line is supposed to have a tab as the first thing on that line.
