Sure, it can be prevented by us all being perfect. We are not, so we
make mistakes. In this case, I modified the Makefiles in a strange
order, and did the channel drivers directory last. Because of that, when
I removed that header file (which was old, not new), the stuff in
formats did not get rebuilt so I did not notice that it was broken.

I think you may be expecting too much here; the trunk will be broken at
times, and may even fail to compile. That is not a reason to get excited
or upset; post the problem here, or get on #asterisk-dev on IRC and find
out if someone is in the middle of either fixing it or breaking it worse :)
