Replacing 'bool' with 'signed char' is, of course, not the way to go.

For the analysis of the problem: You have already sent a copy of
/usr/include/stdbool.h. I would also need:
  - a copy of the gnulib-generated stdbool.h (in the build tree of
  - the preprocessed output of one of the compilation units that failed
    to compile (i.e. revert your patch, run "make", pick the cc command
    that failed, replace "cc ... -o xx.o" with "cc ... -E > xx.i",
    execute that command, then gzip xx.i and send it as attachment).
