Question trying to addd alias saving support

From: Dann Fuller (

I'm running a Circle 3.0 MUD, to which I'm trying to add alias.c so 
players can save aliases.  Problem is, after following the directions in 
the makefile, I run the make, and I get:

/usr/local/circle30bpl11/src % make
make ../bin/circle
gcc -c -g -O -Wall -fno-strict-prototypes  alias.c

In file included from alias.c:19:
structs.h:881: parse error before `socket_t'
structs.h:881: warning: no semicolon at end of struct or union
structs.h:911: parse error before `}'

*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `alias.o'
Current working directory /usr/local/circle30bpl11/src
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `default'

It's the stuff in structs.h that I don't understand.  It compiles fine 
without alias.c, (or newalias.c, I've tried both) so I guess the problem 
is in there.  I just don't know what that problem is.  

Has anyone gotten this to work, and if so, can they point out where 
I might be going wrong?  I'm not on the list yet, so if you oculd reply 
to me directly, that owuld be great.
