thanks for giving it a spin, Kiyo! Jrandom sent me the patch in private, 
too, and I soon saw the mistake of my ways, as I had assumed that the 
error message was produced because the compiler didn't find the types of 
the local variables, which actually the code was C++-influenced rather 
than legal C and that caused the compiler to complain ;)

I've checked jrandom's patch in now. I'll add -ansi and -pedantic to our 
CFLAGS in order to catch such problems in the future.
