It would appear that you have an old version of the header file
installed. My version shows:

spl:spl> head /usr/local/include/forms.h
* forms.h $Revision: 0.88 $ $State: Beta $
* $Date: 1998/02/22 05:35:07 $ $Author: zhao $
*. All XForms files as distributed in this package are
* Copyright(c) 1996-1998 by T.C. Zhao and Mark Overmars.


spl:spl> grep fl_set_input_vscrollbar /usr/local/include/forms.h
FL_EXPORT void fl_set_input_vscrollbar(FL_OBJECT *, int);

All sorts of strange things will probably happen with a mismatch
between libraries and header files.
