I've been able to compile many more programs, but some halt with error
messages pointing to lines like this in the source:

__RCSID("$NetBSD: errx.c,v 1.3 1997/07/17 21:33:22 thorpej Exp $");

The error looks like: 

-I/c/sup/src/lib/libc/include -D__DBINTERFACE_PRIVATE -DPOSIX_MISTAKE
-DFLOATING_POINT  -Werror  -c /c/sup/src/lib/libc/gen/errx.c
/c/sup/src/lib/libc/gen/errx.c:41: syntax error before string constant
cc1: warnings being treated as errors
/c/sup/src/lib/libc/gen/errx.c:41: warning: data definition has no type or
storage class
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

Did I get a funky download, or screw up somewhere?
