Does arena.h have conditional compile statements like

#ifndef __ARENA_H__
#define __ARENA_H__



If so, does something accidentally define __ARENA_H__ these somewhere
else, causing the contents of arena.h to not be included?

I don't have the code here at work, so this is just a stab in the dark.
The other possiblity is that the definitions themselfs are conditionally

The other is that there is another arena.h somewhere that is getting
included instead

The absolute best thing to do is to run

gcc -E comm.c


cpp comm.c

This will run the c preproccesor (cpp) only, which will show you exactly
what is being done with the include files and macros.  This shows you
exactly what is being sent to the actual C compiler.

Hope this helps.
