Default nvidia-settings 190.40 doesn't compile

I am using xorg-server 1.7 with xf86vidmodeproto version 2.3. nvidia-settings doesn't compile against this because X_XF86VidModeGetGammaRampSize is now defined in xf86vmproto.h rather than xf86vmode.h. I have patched NvCtrlAttributesVidMode.c to include the new file, but version check wrappers will need to be added:

Sounds like a bug in xf86vmode.h. A change to the library shouldn't break client programs like nvidia-settings. I'd suggest reporting this on xorg@lists.freedesktop.org.
