Is this g++? If so, then a g++ bug is exacerbating your problem.
If so, abs() is a builtin, and g++ does not currently warn if a builtin
has no prototype in scope when it is called. This has been patched in
the gcc mainline; see
I'm not sure how easy it would be to backport it to 2.95.x; the C++
frontend has undergone *big* changes since then (functions-as-trees
being the biggest I can think of, but there are *lots*.)
