No, but looking at the codes you might need to:
1. delete make_prompt() from comm.c
2. change one of the spare int (or long?) in player_special_data_saved
struct into prompt in structs.h
3. add definitions for PROMPT_xxx (eg: PROMPT_HIT, PROMPT_TANK_COND, etc)
in struct.h (appropriate?)
4. create macros for IS_PC and IS_ANSI_TERM in utils.h (think the person
who sent this forgot about the macros).
5. remove all reference to is_introd() in prompt.c since it's a part of an
introduction system not available in stock.
6. add entry into Makefile and so that it'll compile properly.

Looking at the IS_ANSI_TERM macro, I believe that the original coder is
trying to check whether the player can receive colorcodes. So, you might
just change the parts that refer to IS_ANSI_TERM to use stock color macros

Note: Before you do the changes that I mentioned above, better backup
everything. That's the impression that I got by looking at the codes. I'm
not using it tho so I might be wrong. BTW, you'll need to delete or convert
your pfile since you'll be changing the player struct (unless you're using
ascii pfile).
