I can only confirm this (Solaris 10, Sun Studio 11). Line 75 in either
file does not make sense to me in this context. Is there anything in
particular I should be looking for?

But see also this:

Solaris10machine $ gcc -c -O -DSUN -DSYSV -DBINTRAJ -Dlex embed.c
In file included from embed.c:130:
lex.dg_options.c:75: error: initializer element is not constant
lex.dg_options.c:75: error: (near initialization for `dgoout')

(on gcc 3.4.2)

Another thing to note (in general regarding Suns, possibly not related
to this) is that C99 support on Sun Studio depends on the OS release -
it's only available on Solaris 10. -xc99 is included in the compiler
regardless, but it produces an error message under S8 and S9.
