Thank you Albrecht.  I "rediscovered" the README.abi-version.txt after
posting the STR.  I know that 1.4 deprecates the FLTK_ABI_VERSION, but I
still think there is a problem with the way that all prior distributions
are posted.  It is common for most end users to simply use "./configure &&
make && make install" when building an application and the dependent
libraries.  Both the end-user-product maintainer and the user-builder must
be informed that "./configure --with-abiversion=10305" is required or the
end-user code may fail to compile.  Try creating an application that uses
Fl_Tree wherein the enum FL_TREE-REASON_RESELECTED was a part of a boolean
test:

enum Fl_Tree_Reason {
  FL_TREE_REASON_NONE=0,        ///< unknown reason
  FL_TREE_REASON_SELECTED,      ///< an item was selected
  FL_TREE_REASON_DESELECTED,    ///< an item was de-selected
#if FLTK_ABI_VERSION >= 10301
  FL_TREE_REASON_RESELECTED,    ///< an item was re-selected (e.g.
double-clicked)
#endif /*FLTK_ABI_VERSION*/
  FL_TREE_REASON_OPENED,        ///< an item was opened
  FL_TREE_REASON_CLOSED,        ///< an item was closed
  FL_TREE_REASON_DRAGGED        ///< an item was dragged into a new place
};

I know this can be resolved at the user code level.  But a more universal
solution would be to default the FLTK_ABI_VERSION to the actual
distribution version rather than a null string.
