The first thing to note is that you cannot use AC_CHECK_TYPE macro
to check for mbstate_t.  You have to use AC_TYPE_MBSTATE_T instead.

OK. This does not change the problem, sorry.

If you experience problems with AC_TYPE_MBSTATE_T, please give the
details: if you are trying to compile a package, point us to the
tarball.  If you are writing an autoconf script, please prepare an
example, as small as possible, to demonstrate the bug.

I have made it as small as possible, removed automake libtool and gettext to have only make and autoconf involved. Please have a look at it here:


On several systems (Solaris 2.6, openBSD 3.6, macOS X 10.2) the
"./configure && make" fails due to the redefinition by the configure script of the mbtate_t type, on Linux instead it seems to work properly,
with the same compiler version.

the problem seems to be linked with the gcc C++ header files:
In file included from /usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3/c++/bits/fpos.h:45,
                 from /usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3/c++/iosfwd:49,
from /usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3/c++/bits/stl_algobase.h:70,
                 from /usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3/c++/algorithm:66,
/usr/include/gcc/darwin/3.3/c++/cwchar:65: error: semicolon missing after struct declaration

while with the same compiler version on linux all works perfectly well... 8-|

Have a nice day,
