   (defun ignore-multiline-comment (nlines)
     DOCSTRING
     (if (zerop nlines)
         nil
       (if (looking-at ".*?\\*/")
                   (progn
                     (goto-char (match-end 0))
                     (ignore-line-comments nlines))
         (beginning-of-line 2)
         (ignore-multiline-comment (1- nlines)))))

In addition to suggestions made by others, i would replace the
(current) recursion w/ iteration, so as to future-proof against
large ‘nlines’ (maybe the text has short multiline comments now,
but you never know what weirdness may inspire the programmer to
wax eloquent in the future :-D).
