line 65 to 67 in revision 6174 read:
typedef svn_error_t *svn_wc_relocation_validator(void *baton,

const char *old,

const char *new);

The problem is the third parameter.
(file subversion/include/svn_wc.h)

Obviously it didn't. But I'll check my settings...
Hmmm - I think that only prevents errors in functions, not in typedefs?

See above.
Even with the #ifdef in the header which should prevent
such errors I strongly recommend not using "new" or any
other C++ keyword as parameter or variable names.
