Trouble building VM to VM module

I am unable to build the module for guest to guest access. I was able to build the client application. I’m not sure what I’m missing based on reading

I get this error on make:

gcc test.c -Wall -Werror -g -Og -o test	
test.c:12:19: fatal error: kvmfr.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
Makefile:13: recipe for target 'test' failed
make: *** [test] Error 1

If I copy the KVMFR.h file from common to kvmfr.h and attempt to build (as close to an idea as I had) I get this:

gcc test.c -Wall -Werror -g -Og -o test
In file included from test.c:12:0:

I don’t really think that kvmfr.h file I’m using is correct but there isn’t one in https://github.com/gnif/LookingGlass/tree/master/module

I pulled the Beta1 version instead and the code in that I was able to build.

Bleeding edge has some massive changes going in and there may be breakages like this. Thanks for reporting though as I will see about fixing the build.
