I see you found the cause but you do at least need to investigate this sort of error. If it really is embedded in a comment--that is inside a properly closed comment--then it can be ignored but better to remove the cause of the warning.

The reason you need to investigate is that it may in fact be cause by an unclosed comment which will be closed by the next */ sequence. This may mean that real code is omitted from the compile.

In fact, I'd suggest you try to resolve ALL warning messages from the C compiler.

Another thing you may find useful is to specify CHECKOUT(xxxx) which operates like a Lint filter and can catch a number of the stupidities that C lets you do. I'd suggest at least CHECKOUT(*USAGE) and fix everything it complains about.
