Why would utils.h have anything to do with it?

The problem is that at line 1002 the structure you're calling doesn't have a
member called 'specials' to get the 'fighting' from.  Right, so what's this
all mean.

This is where the problem is.  There is no (ch)->specials member.  But there
is a
(ch)->char_specials member.  Try replacing it with that, or simply use the
macro FIGHTING(ch).
