While this may be the case, I would tend to think that the compiler would have
complained about a parse error (when it runs across the second */) in
structs.h, however, according to the original poster's output, there was no
such error.  Also from what the output is showing it looks like a lot of
#defines are missing from mobcmd.c (which would happen if the OP accidentally
deleted a */).
