I've never seen this type of thing before.  Is it a precompiler of some sort?
It's getting an error, looks like it's tripping over a common FreeBSD type, a
uid_t.  I know how I'd handle this with a C file, I'd find out where it was
defined, see if it was already included but had define masking problems, or if
it just plain wasn't included before, and then add an include for it, but I
don't know what the heck this thing is ... code is /usr/lib??  that's wacky ...

Anyhow, here's the last part of the error listing (from xserver,dix).  If you
don't recognize the error, but know something about the .d files, you could tell
me, then I could pester the FreeBSD folks about it:

ranlib .libs/libdix.a
creating libdix.la
(cd .libs && rm -f libdix.la && ln -s ../libdix.la libdix.la)
/usr/sbin/dtrace -G -C -o dtrace-dix.o -s ../dix/Xserver.d .libs/*.o
dtrace: failed to compile script ../dix/Xserver.d: "/usr/lib/dtrace/psinfo.d",
line 37: syntax error near "uid_t"
