Warning when compiling nmbd_incomingdgrams.c

I just downloaded samba-1.9.18p3.tar.gz and compiled it on a DEC 3000/300
running OSF/1 v3.0 (uname -mrsv gives: "OSF1 V3.0 347 alpha") using the
built-in cc compiler.

The compiler gives the following warning:

Compiling nmbd_incomingdgrams.c
/usr/lib/cmplrs/cc/cfe: Warning: nmbd_incomingdgrams.c, line 452: Unknown
character \ ignored
     ((DEBUGLEVEL>=(5))?(Debug1 ("process_lm_host_announce: LM Announcement
packet does not " \


The lines in nmbd_incomingdgrams.c that the compiler complains about, looks
like this (starting vith line 450):

  if ((osmajor < 36) || (osmajor > 38) || (osminor !=0))
    DEBUG(5,("process_lm_host_announce: LM Announcement packet does not " \
             "originate from OS/2 Warp client. Ignoring packet.\n"));
    /* Could have been from a Windows machine (with its LM Announce enabled),
       or a Samba server. Then don't disrupt the current browse list. */

Nothing serious I guess.
