i put the prototype with the externs like this:

/* extern variables */
extern struct str_app_type str_app[];
extern struct room_data *world;
extern struct descriptor_data *descriptor_list;
extern struct room_data *world;
extern struct dex_skill_type dex_app_skill[];
extern struct spell_info_type spell_info[];
extern struct index_data *mob_index;
extern char *class_abbrevs[];
void write_aliases(struct char_data *ch);

and my do_save looks like this:

  if (IS_NPC(ch) || !ch->desc)

  if (cmd) {
    sprintf(buf, "Saving %s.\r\n", GET_NAME(ch));
    send_to_char(buf, ch);
  save_char(ch, NOWHERE);
  if (ROOM_FLAGGED(ch->in_room, ROOM_HOUSE_CRASH))

And it works just fine for me... hope this helps.
