xacembly won't compile on linuxppc

I managed to compile xace for my Mac G3/233 running linuxppc-1999, since
the linux binaries wouldn't execute after downloading and installing.
However, I couldn't get xacembly to compile, instead it gave me the
error message shown below about defcpt.c.  Any suggestions on how to fix
defcpt.c so that it will compile.  I'm compiling version 4_7l.  I've
tried a few of the linux compile options and so far LINUX_4_OPT has
worked the best.  Also, is it sufficient to copy all the docs from wdoc
to a directory called whelp to get all the help that is available?
Thanks for any suggestions.
