Hi Marcel, This error is a warning for me with gcc 4.7.3 when I try. With 4.2.1 in the tree, it appears to be silenced by something (or possibly we're using the native blocks code path with gcc and clang doesn't emit that warning in non-blocks mode). We could pull out the structure definitions - this is what I've done in the GNUstep versions of these macros, which provide separate macros for declaring the type. It will clutter the code a bit, but if it's not possible to silence the warnings with your compiler then I can make that change.
Unfortunately, the warning actually is spurious here - the structure really is expected to be only for the scope of the function, because any compiler that can actually generate those structure in a useful way will give the type a different internal name. I'll try to send you a patch to test tomorrow - in the meantime, removing the -Werror should make it build. Unfortunately, gcc (especially 4.2) doesn't provide very fine-grained control over warnings and it doesn't seem to be possible (or, at least, not documented) to disable the ones that are part of their default set.
