pgsql2shp.c is throwing an error in the last stages of compile on Redhat 7.3, 
with Postgres 7.3.3.

The error is as follows:

pgsql2shp.c: In function `create_multipolygon3D_WKB':
pgsql2shp.c:1628: parse error before `nrings'
pgsql2shp.c:1646: `nparts' undeclared (first use in this function)

and occurs during compilation of the folowing line(s):

         SHPObject *obj;
         obj = (SHPObject *)malloc(sizeof(SHPObject));

change it to:
 SHPObject *obj = (SHPObject *)malloc(sizeof(SHPObject));

and it compiles OK (I think). Totally unsure as to why this latter code does 
not throw an error. Any insights?
