Instead of trying to fix the compilation yourself, you can leverage
the work of those who have gone before you by installing the
comms/openobex port.  In fact, with this software I think that some
quite significant patching of code is required:

    % cd /usr/ports/comms/openobex
    % ls files/
    patch-Makefile.in               patch-src-obex.c
    patch-aclocal.m4                patch-src-obex.h
    patch-configure.in              patch-src-obex_const.h
    patch-ltmain.sh                 patch-src-obex_main.c
    patch-src-btobex.c              patch-src-obex_transport.h
