It complains about line 2 of
if(!ret && !dos_stat(dname,&sbuf) && mode & ~sbuf.st_mode)
This is a declaration [int ret],
then code [=dos_to_unix(dname,False),mode);],
then another declaration [SMB_STRUCT_STAT sbuf;]
It does not allow declarations behind code ...

Well, I sniffed around a bit. The original patch was from
gcarter at lanier.com. I sent a mail over there asking for some
explanation, bid did not receive anything yet.
The only thing DejaNews knows about this address is a posting to samba
(-technical?) in 10 oder 11/1999 asking for some special features of
an OS named "Dynx/PTX 4.46". I think this should be "Dynix". DejaNews
at the moment archives only back until 05/1999 or so.
My own archive of the samba mailing list reaches back until 1996 and
what I found there was really interesting:

You need to use "directory mode" also.
Then, there's a problem in samba <= 2.0.6 regarding the sticky

+ Cope with UNIXes that don't allow high order mode bits on mkdir.
+ Patch from gcarter at lanier.com.
In fact, at least Linux does not handle mkdir("dir", 0n777) with n!=0
as expected: the mode seems to be and-ed with 0777.
I read you have access to some lot of operating systems. Could you
give mkdir("dir", 01777) a try?
