I figured that a driver's prototypes would be in the driver's source,  
but there I see it in gdal_frmts.h.  So yeah,  
GDALRegister_ECW_JP2ECW() really is not going to work in GDAL 1.5.2.   
(checking the library symbols, GDALRegister_ECW_JP2ECW() ends up as a C 
++ symbol, instead of a C symbol)

I need to update ;)
