I don't know whether IRIX 6.2 is an old or new release, but
having to fix C problems is not a good sign. Your best bet
is probably to install gcc and try again using the original
non-hacked sources. gcc-3.3.3, gcc-3.2.3, and gcc-2.95.3
should all work; gcc-3.0.x is known to be broken.

Installing updated GNU make and perl wouldn't hurt either.
