You didn't say which one.

(Fortunately it's obvious enough in this case)

Something like:

        switch (x) {
        case 3:
        }

will result in this error message in C9x.  Solution:  insert a semicolon
like:

        switch (x) {
        case 3:
        ;
        }

The reason is that the C stanadard requires - and thus gcc since 3.4 (?) -
a label to be followed by a statement and a semicolon alone is already
an statement.
