Hi, Jose and others.

I ran into the same problem and I fixed it by modifying the file global.h.

I added these lines:

 #ifndef linux
 #define linux

I added them right after the first two lines, which are:

 #ifndef GLOBAL_H
 #define GLOBAL_H

It did get rid of my error, but did not affect the size of the compile. I 
have compiled it with and without the error message, and I have not 
detected any difference. But the error message was bothering me, so I use 
the version that I modified.

I will tell you that I am not a programmer, and not even a good hacker. So 
others may want to comment on whether this is indeed a good fix or if it 
may cause other problems that I don't know about.

Good luck,
