So, please confirm:

You have uninstalled Xcode using the uninstall-devtools script?
You have reinstalled Xcode from the App Store?
You have reinstalled the command line tools?
It still fails with the error message "/usr/include/strings.h:74:47: error: expected function body after function declarator"?

Line 74 of /usr/include/strings.h reads:

int	 bcmp(const void *, const void *, size_t) __POSIX_C_DEPRECATED(200112L);

Character 47 is the beginning of __POSIX_C_DEPRECATED. __POSIX_C_DEPRECATED should be defined in /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h like this:


Could you attach your copy of /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h so we can check if it's the same as ours?
