I had exactly this problem with Lynx-2.8rel1 ages ago, in that case, it
was the optimization interaction between the compiler and the glibc-2.0.94
strcpy macro stuff. So, I just removed the -O2 parameter and we_wind.c now
compiles.

I am now certain that glibc-2.0.94 is the problem here. When I ran
we_wind.c through the -E preprocessor, I got some weird-ass strcpy macros
all over the place at the problem line (line 1290) that covered a whole
page. Guess I'd better go bug the glibc boys :o) 

Thanks for the input, Philip. The compilier almost certainly isn't the
problem here.

Cheers,
Alex
