Got to agree with the irix compiler on this one.  Even
though rampaging C++ coders can get away with this, it
is  *not* valid C code.

One thing that surprises me is that irix does not complain
about all the // C++ style comments in the C files.

Probably something to do with the 17442 error messages 
that are generated.  ( ok, the number is *slighty* bogus
since a bunch of these are error cascades generated from
a single error.  Still, it is an impressive number, is it 
not? )

/me suspects that some of this borderline code is what
keeps us from turning the optimization level up.
