please keep in mind, that you increase the chance to get
help from people, if you make it easier for them to help you.

so _please_ change your environment to produce english error

the easiest way to achieve this temporarily is to prepend
all commands with:
env LC_ALL=C

running gcc or make to get any help from people that

yes. you did not post the function, that actually has

there was some change in the API and main.c has not
