This is line 795; the underlined part has been added since 1.9.11:

    age = mktime( &timearray ) - (strstr( arg, "GMT" ) ? timezone : 0);
                               ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I have no idea what your error message could mean. However, upon
investigation it appears to me that the "timezone" variable is not 
explicitely declared. It should, however, be declared in <time.h>.
If this is not the case (or if the type is incorrect: on my Linux
glibc2.1 system, it is declared as "long int"), the a ? b : 0 construct
might fail. I have no idea if this could yield your error message.

What does "./configure" say about gmtoff ? On my system, it looks like
this:
checking for gmtoff in struct tm... (cached) yes

PS: Maybe I've asked you this before: please mail me the man page of
    ctime(3).
