 Thank you for verifying this.  I myself had to move to -CURRENT a
couple of weeks ago because of a new PC, and waited until the latest
patch was committed by the port maintainer to make it compile under
-CURRENT.  Looks like I should have updated my system sources around the
same time, instead of holding back for 5 more days :)

 At this point I might try to trace the preprocessor output during the
build process, up to the line where the error occurs.  As soon as I have
some time to work on this, anyway.

 thanks again
