Thank you for testing. Activeds.tbl has another few unhandled
particularities I hadn't encountered before.
I've reworked the complete alias/record/union import. The above example is
something that C can handle with incomplete typedefs but pascal can't. The
approach now is to defer type declarations until all user_types used have
been declared, external or internal. In case of circular references, an
error message is added to the header so that the user can either solve the
circular reference or remove the types.

> 3. same problem as activeds, types that have "internal" names.

1. added a check against reserved identifiers in all places.
2,3. same as activeds
Added also support for unions.
Both files compile now.
