This seemed nice so I tried it out, and I get two errors with strcpy:

gcc -c -g -O -Wall -fno-strict-prototypes  act.informative.c
act.informative.c: In function `do_whogroup':
act.informative.c:1131: too many arguments to function `strcpy'
act.informative.c:1137: too many arguments to function `strcpy'
*** Error code 1

The lines are:

       strcpy(buf1, "%s is followed by:\n\r", GET_NAME(d->character));
         strcpy(buf1, "%s%s", GET_NAME(f->follower), (!next ? "\n\r" : ", "));

I cannot find anything wrong with these, any ideas?

Both of them have next:

          strcat(buf, buf1);
