[h323plus] ast_h323.h:104: error: 'BOOL' has not been declared

First I tried a newer version of Ptlib. It appears Ptlib 2.7 isn't
compatible with h323plus 1.21.0. 


I then tried Ptlib 2.6.6 which compiled with h323plus 1.21.0, but
Asterisk still gave the 'BOOL' make error.


I then moved forward to finding and replacing in the Asterisk code.


Globally replacing the code didn't work, but finding and replacing just
'channels/h323/ast_h323.cxx' & 'channels/h323/ast_h323.h' seemed to do
the trick.

[root at localhost asterisk]# ldd /usr/lib/asterisk/modules/chan_h323.so

        libstdc++.so.6 => /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 (0x00002ab1fd5db000)

do a global replace of BOOL with PBoolean.

I'm trying to compile chan_h323 for Asterisk, I only get an error when I
start the make on Asterisk. Can someone shed some light on this issue?
