bug#13908: Unable to compile Emacs 23.3 Release Candidate 2

I don't think the problem is GCC 4.1.2.  I just now built Emacs 24.3 with
GCC 4.1.2 (a compiler I built from scratch, on Fedora 17), and Emacs
compiled OK.  I configured with:

  --with-x-toolkit=no --with-xpm=no --with-jpeg=no --with-png=no --with-gif=no 
--with-tiff=no --with-imagemagick=no

because GCC 4.1.2 is so old that it can't deal with those headers
on my platform.

Looking at James's config.log, I see:

config.status:1813: creating src/config.h
config.status:1984: src/config.h is unchanged

which is a danger sign.  It means you're not configuring from a fresh
tarball.  Can you please try starting from scratch?

The following symptom is also worrisome:

lisp.h:2938: error: expected declaration specifiers before 'INLINE'

src/conf_post.h always defines INLINE to something else, so if the
rest of the code is seeing 'INLINE' then there's something wrong with
the configuration process.  My guess is that src/config.h is corrupted
somehow.  So, in addition to the info that Eli asked for, can you
please send us a copy of your src/config.h?  Also, can you please check
that your src/conf_post.h is unmodified from the Emacs 24.3 tarball?
