On OS X 10.5.3 I'm using the default Apple gcc 4.0.1.  It appears that  
the inline
semantics have changed to be more C99-ish, if perhaps not fully C99.

This means that you don't want to declare a function inline (in the  
prototype) and
also use the inline keyword in the definition.  The inline keyword  
should only
be used in the definition.  I patched sim_defs.h to be

--- sim_defs.h.sav	2008-06-25 14:10:17.000000000 -0400
+++ sim_defs.h	2008-06-25 14:12:21.000000000 -0400
@@ -165,6 +165,7 @@

  #if defined (__GNUC__)                                  /* GCC */
  #define SIM_INLINE inline
  #elif defined (_MSC_VER)                                /* Microsoft  
C Compilers */
  #define SIM_INLINE __inline
  #else                                                   /* default */

and changed the SIM_INLINE declarations in vax_cpu.c, vax780_defs.h and
vaxmod_defs.h to SIM_INLINE_DECL.

This solved the problem form me with Apple gcc-4.0.1; with some  
conditionals it can probably be made backwardly compatible with  
Apple's gcc-3.x.
(C99 inline semantics were broken for at least some gcc 3.x compilers,  
so specifying
-std=c99 may give whimsical results.)
