[Rd] syntax error in memory.c when building R-devel on AIX

OK, this is really a new one for me.  Just thought I'd try building R-devel
(2005-03-15) on our AIX power machines and see if there are any problems.  I
used the settings in the Appendix B of R-admin, using the set of variables
that Tim Hoar used (i.e., trying to build 64-bit R using native compilers).
configure ran fine, but `gmake' gave me a syntax error when compiling
src/main/memory.c.  The offending line seems to be:

    Rboolean success = FALSE;

Can anyone provide pointers?  

(Just to make sure, I tried building it on our SLES9-x86_64 box, and that
passes make check.)
