Well yes. NetBSD's cc is basically gcc, and in gcc "inline" is a
language keyword. Renaming the variable is perhaps the most obvious
fix. I don't know whether any include files use inline (if they do,
they should be changed to use __inline instead, because of exactly this
sort of thing); you might be able to compile with -Dinline=xinline or
some such, to rename the array.
