On the compile warpath

Got all the FM chips converted over, and finally decided to move forward with just compiling everything and fixing up problems as the compiler finds them. (Rule #1 of making a huge system-wide change like this: be absolutely sure that anything you don't change causes a compile error so that you don't forget fixing it!)

I can compile successfully up to sndhrdw/qix.c. Still quite a ways to go, but it's getting easier as things move on.

Once it compiles, of course, I have the fun work of making sure that a decent sampling of titles still play sound correctly before I hand it off to be version 0.93. Then the fun becomes everyone else's. :-)
