You need the race patch to fix one? There is some race
code in the patch, but it is only conditionally compiled, based
on the presence of a GET_RACE #define. If you don't have that
defined I don't see why you'd get anything from the compiler on it.
If you do have it but are using a different patch for it, assuming the
problem is in dg_scripts.c at the sprinttype line, where GET_RACE()
[as a macro] is called, you should copy to the "str" buffer the name
of the race of the character.

One of the things done by the patch is to move the SENDOK macro from
comm.c to utils.h.. It's my guess that when patching, you didn't do this,
and your compiler adds _ to the beginning of function symbols.
