Error compiling libgnome-2.0.6 in Mandrake 10.2

Hello all,
Sorry if this question has been asnwered elsewhere, but I just can't seem to find any answers. I've been trying to compile libgnome-2.0.6 under Mandrake 10.2 LE 2005. I'm using Gnome 2.8.3 and gcc version 3.4.3. The configure script executes fine, but when I run make, I get this error:

gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.. -I.. -pthread -DORBIT2=1 -I/usr/local/include/glib-2.0 -I/usr/local/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/usr/local/include/gnome-vfs-2.0 -I/usr/local/lib/gnome-vfs-2.0/include -I/usr/local/include/bonobo-activation-2.0 -I/usr/local/include/libbonobo-2.0 -I/usr/local/include/gconf/2 -I/usr/local/include/orbit-2.0 -I/usr/include/libxml2 -DG_LOG_DOMAIN=\"libgnome\" -DVERSION=\"2.0.6\" -g -O2 -c bonobo-config-bag.c -fPIC -DPIC -o .libs/bonobo-config-bag.lo
bonobo-config-bag.c: In function `impl_Bonobo_PropertyBag_getType':
bonobo-config-bag.c:129: error: label at end of compound statement
make[2]: *** [bonobo-config-bag.lo] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jeff/Desktop/libgnome-2.0.6/monikers'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jeff/Desktop/libgnome-2.0.6'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

Since it seems that there is a problem with libbonobo, I went and installed the latest version. It installed without any problem. So I have no idea what to do now. Any help would be appreciated.

Open this with a text editor like Kate. Go to line 129, because that is where the error is. "Label at end of compound statement". Not sure what that means, or how to fix it. Just take a look, try something, but remember your changes.

Thanks for the help guys. I finally got it to compile.
It was necessary to slightly modify the source file. The section in question was a switch statement. All I did was remove the default case from the switch statment. It did nothing but fall through, so nothing was really changed.
