[OpenBIOS] adding words to open bios

I'm having a lot of difficulty trying to add my own words to OpenBIOS.
I though it would be easy as defining the word and saving it in one of
the .fs files. Here is my simple word

: testword
." this is a test word"

I tried adding this word to start.fs, but when I try to compile
OpenBIOS r666, I receive this error:

john at iBook:~/openbios-devel$ make

Could someone point me into the right direction?
