Thanks a lot.

The generated definition looked like:

typedef struct   FormData_     pg_attribute
        Oid                     attrelid;

        NameData        attname;
        Oid                     atttypid;

Apparently, the configure script did not correctly recognize the stringizing
capibality of the preprocessor. (Should I report this as a bug in
autoconf???) Defining the HAVE_STRINGIZING macro in config.h by hand seemed
to solve the problem and the compilation completed without error (though
with lots of "<type>_{MIN | MAX} redefined" warnings).

Thank you again.

There's some macro trickery going on there, so it's hard to tell what it's
really seeing.  Try this:

$ cd src/backend/access/common
$ make heaptuple.o CFLAGS=-save-temps

Then look at the resulting (I hope) heaptuple.i and look at what's
really happening at line 42 (search for pg_attribute should find it).  It
should look similar to this:

# 42 "../../../../src/include/catalog/pg_attribute.h" 1
typedef struct FormData_pg_attribute
        Oid attrelid;

        NameData attname;
# 55 "../../../../src/include/catalog/pg_attribute.h"
        Oid atttypid;

There's the "{" it's talking about.
