Your patch fixed the syntax errors.

Unfortunately, I did have linker errors.  The error was identical
regardless of specifying -finline-functions:

/usr/bin/libtool: internal link edit command failed
ld: for architecture ppc
ld: cl_prin_globals.lo has external relocation entries in non-writable
section (__TEXT,__text) for symbols:

Don't let the 'libtool' name fool you.  It is not GNU libtool, but is a
system linker driver closer in nature to 'collect' than to GNU Libtool. 
When I find out what exactly those errors signify, I will let you know.
