Thanks for the explanation. I think I'll do that and add the prototypes
to the headers (no prototypes for the inline functions).

Hmm, reading the C/C++ Language Reference indicates inline as a
function declarator is a C++ addition so I took you previous example
code and compiled that using the C++ compiler (source type CPP) and
that changed the error. Now it complains about the prototype and the
function not matching. Adding static inline to the prototype fixed that.

So you need to ensure:

a) You use the C++ compiler
b) Prototypes and functions match

Regarding b) some compilers are less rigourous than the ILE C/C++
compiler and may tolerate mismatches between prototypes and function
declarations. Welcome to the joy of porting C/C++ to different
