Which version are you trying to compile? 7.0? 7.1? From hg?

If you are compiling 7.0 or 7.1 from the source, download this[1]
ScintillaTerm.cxx and put it in `src/scintilla/term/`.

If you are compiling from hg, ensure you have the latest ScintillaTerm.cxx
from hg[2].

I'm pretty sure the problem stems from Textadept's makefile trying to pull
Scinterm hg, which is now out of sync with 7.0 and 7.1 due to the
Scintilla update to 3.3.7. Sorry for the inconvenience.
