The problem is occuring when using the macro:

# define _(Args) Args
# define _(Args) ()

(defined in system.h) which should convert things like

extern int bin_umask _((char*nam,char**args,Options ops,UNUSED(int func)));


extern int bin_umask (char*nam,char**args,Options ops,UNUSED(int func));

However, the error doesn't give much clue as to why it's going wrong
here.  Are there obvious errors within builtin.epro (that might be
caused by awk or sed going haywire)?  You can mail it as an attachment
if it's not obvious.  If it is wrong builtin.syms might be the
interesting one.  Also check what "AWK = " is set to in the generated
Makemod in the same (Src) directory.
