Just sniffing around the web, I found that this is a problem caused by newer versions of gcc. One reporter stated that they resolved the problem by adding "-fgnu89-inline" to their configuration:
"add the compiler flag "-fgnu89-inline" (because of an issue where old glibc libraries aren't compatible with "the c99 standard"). I added the compilation flag (adding it just after the "-std=gnu99" option) and the compilation errors went away."
