Have the Marlin V1 Candidate 2 modified?

I do not get compile I get many errors on the Marcoantonini.

Thanks.
I just fixed the link to my google doc. I can't confirm how to hook it up to the melzi board yet because I am still building my reprap. Let me know if you figure it out and I'll add it to the instructions.
Mr John,
I took delivery of my LCD module today so this post is very welcome. Can you confirm that connection to the MELZI / Sanguinololu is from four of the pins used by the programming cable and not from any of the bank of I/O pins to the right hand side of those. I think that your photo shows this but I would appreciate your comment. By the way - the link posted just brings up a blank editing screen for me rather than your documentation as I expected. (Will try again later - this new Thingiverse site is causing me all sorts of problems!).

Instructions

NOTE: This case may be a little snug! scale it up or be gentle installing it!

Find yourself one of these LCD-32PTU screens, a micro sd card, a usb to TTL cable.
I wrote my own set of directions because I found Marco's to be a little thin for a layman like myself.

The case file is highly inspired by Marco's for the older style LCD but I decided against a full cover back. Instead mine only uses two "lock bars" That sandwich the board brackets using an M3x25 bolt.

As always, there is room for improvement so feel free to comment and re-design as you see fit.

Mr. John,
My LCD screen was delivered today so your post is very timely. Unfortunately, I just get a blank document when clicking the link. Can you confirm that the connection to the Melzi/Sanguinololu goes to four of the pins which are used for the programming cable and not picked out of the I/O pins to the right of those? (Looks that way in your photograph - thank you).
