The C preprocessor on your platform is not stripping C++ style comments.
These comments do not appear in amber8 or amber9 but in the
unreleased development version of amber.
Do not use this list for development code issues.
I'll fix these comments in cvs.

Because ANSI C99 supports C++ style comments,
but we shall probably try to stay C89 compliant.

Send the details of your patch for this to the developers list.

More information is required: which test is failing.
Send the details to the developers list.
