problem compiling binutils 2.10

Now I have defined HOST_HPPAHPUX and saw that the following files were

So I created bfd/hppa-hpux-include, copied lst.h, created machine, copied
reg.h and added the include path.
Now this is the result of make:

make[2]: Entering directory
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.

som.c:792: initializer element is not constant

and so on ...

COMPUNIT is a define in /usr/include/compunit.h:

struct compilation_unit {
        union name_pt    name;
        union name_pt    language_name;
        union name_pt    product_id;
        union name_pt    version_id;
        unsigned int     reserved   : 31;
        unsigned int     chunk_flag :  1;
        struct sys_clock compile_time;
        struct sys_clock source_time;

#define COMPUNIT struct compilation_unit

So do I have to insert a include statement somewhere? If yes where is it best?
