Trouble compiling BB (aalib demo)


Hello, everybody.

I've recently downloaded a copy of BB from the aalib web site and have run into difficulties compiling it from source on Slackware 10, kernel 2.6.8. "./configure" works fine (or seems to), and I have all the required libraries installed. When I type "make" I get the following output:

Code:
gcc -O2 -fstrength-reduce -ffast-math -fforce-mem -fforce-addr -funroll-loops  -I/usr/X11R6/include    -c -o textform.o textform.c
textform.c:158:1: missing terminating " character

textform.c:273:45: warning: character constant too long for its type
textform.c:271: error: stray '\' in program
make: *** [textform.o] Error 1
I've seen the program demo'd using a knoppix disk, so I doubt that all those errors are problems with the code itself. I suspect that I've got some environmental variable or somesuch set wrong, but I don't know what. Any ideas you can give me would be appreciated.
