SSH compile error

I just installed OpenSSH 4.6p1 on my laptop which runs a fresh install
of Slackware 11.0, and that went very successfully.

When I tried doing a "make" on SSH 1.2.33, I got a bunch of error
messages. Most of them are coming from a file called "divmod_1.c",
reporting syntax errors and stuff, as posted below:

divmod_1.c:191: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
divmod_1.c:193: error: syntax error before "if"
divmod_1.c:204: error: syntax error before ':' token
make[3]: *** [divmod_1.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory '/usr/local/src/ssh-1.2.33/gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2/
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/local/src/ssh-1.2.33/gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2/
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/local/src/ssh-1.2.33/gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2'
make: *** [gmp-2.0.2-ssh-2/libgmp.a] Error 2

There was a big long list of other divmod errors above that. I have
very little experience in Shell and C programming. I'm just trying to
install SSH1 and 2. When I installed Slackware, I did a full install,
and I realize that SSH was automatically installed. I did in fact use
it before I obtained the latest source code. I'm just doing this for
the sake of installing new software, and getting experience with SSH.

Any ideas about where to start? If someone could point me in the
right direction, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
