[Bf-committers] Makesdna fails with "wrong" pointer syntax

Legal but semantically confusing:
ID* a, b, c;  <--- only a is pointer, b and c are not.

IMO this is bad style, and I'm glad that makesdna actually ends up
enforcing it, albeit with a confusing error message. So, a big -1 to
this idea from me.
