I believe that <sys/cdefs.h> on FreeBSD defines __unused to __attribute__(unused), or something similar. This was probably generated by a patched flex for FreeBSD. freebsd-lex might generate the same output, I don't know.

So while I probably might be able to patch this via


this might break on som Debian/FREEBSD port and it would be better to
fix the according flex input.

Debian GNU/kFreeBSD uses __FreeBSD_kernel__, not __FreeBSD__, so it shouldn't affect anything as far as Debian goes. I don't know what Debian GNU/kFreeBSD includes in <sys/cdefs.h>; perhaps one of the porters could tell you.

I also wonder whether there is some hidden quirk in flex.  It might be that
this only happens in old versions of flex and I have to admit that I have
no idea at all about flex and what I would have to do to.

If you apply the attached patch, and regenerate the C file using flex, the program should compile properly. At least on my amd64 system, the executable is built.
