[Circle] [newbie][code] OLC patchprobs

okay..i'm probably gonna get my pee pee spanked for asking this.....

i am going to remake my mud worlds from scratch...so i figured i had better
have an olc to help out my builders.
i decided on oasis.  when i applied the patch, it ran through some of the
messages and then said "ignoring the rest of the garbage".  this didnt look
exactly normal but i decided to go ahead and try to make it.  well, it
recompiled every file, i got no messages saying that any of the files were
up to date, then after all that i got a whole bunch of undefined symbols
errors and fatal errors.  i am running on unixware 2.0 and have had
absolutely zero problems compiling so far..not one.  i'm wondering if maybe
the patch and my sys had a disagreement...

here is the code i got if it will help.  if anybody has seen this before
please let me know.  i shudder at the idea of going in and trying to do it
all by hand, although i suppose it would be good for my "circlemud learning
curve" hehehe  or worse yet....write my own editor*shudder*  that would take
me several decades i suppose.. j/k

here is the tail end of the patch being applied  (patch < OasisOLC.patch)

|diff -c oldsrc/shop.c newsrc/shop.c

Patching file shop.c using Plan A...
Hunk #1 succeeded at 12.
Hmm...  The next patch looks like a new-style context diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:
|diff -c oldsrc/shop.h newsrc/shop.h
|*** oldsrc/shop.h      Mon Apr  8 18:13:55 1996

and here is the last part that i got when i tried to make it right after the
patch.  i tried three time and got the exact
same thing all three times....(patch and remake)

pretty much the only code changes i have made so far that are more than
slightly structural are 3 funct that
list out mobs, objects, and rooms (very similar to the rlist, olist, and
mlist snippit)

any ideas??
sorry this is so long, but i'm totally stumped and need help in a bad way.
