compile problem with static data type



While compiling a unix g++ app (SWIG) under Darwin,
I use ./configure -host powerpc-apple-bsd
as recommended, but have a problem with
variable defined by 'static' data type. Apparently
it isnt defined in any of the headers and the compiler
errors out with a message like:

ANSI C++ forbids declaration `variablename` with
no type.

I could just replace the occurances of `static` with
`int` but that isn't the same as an __inline__. Does
anyone have any ideas how to work around?
