This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 29 development cycle.
Changing version to '29'.

Unclutter's code is a bit old, I wonder if it even compiled in fc28.

Patching is really simple, add stdlib.h to vroot.h and add a couple of return value types and argument types in unclutter.c.  Could attach a patch, but ...

... unclutter has been compiled sucessfully for fc30:
which even claims in the Changelog
  rebuilt to fix FTBFS rhbz #1606840 + spec cleanup and modernization
I assume the source there has been patched.

Maybe close this bug? Or apply the same patch and rebuild the fc29 package?
