    Is there a way to localize the error? 

For the record, this is the brief reply I sent to when Yannis asked me
separately. It's all I have. Web2c is a lousy development environment,
no question.

    Can you tell me how to localize the error?

There is no good way. Just have to go back to the original, make sure it
works, and add individual lines until you find the error, which
apparently has something to do with "true" and a semicolon.

Sometimes the .c file(s) left in (in your case)
as given by the error msg provide a clue. [...]
