#ident in C header file ?

I wonder what means this line in a C header file

#ident  " @(#) (c) SODITEL sax.h 1.1 5/25/94 "

Whitch generate a lot of warning messages at compilation time (IBM/RS6000) , I would like to get rid off :
"typec.h", line 1.2: 1506-218 (E) Unknown preprocessing directive #ident.

NB: The header file comes from UNIX/SCO.

How can I write the same line for my IBM/RS6000 ?
May I delete this line whitout consequences ?

Hi there,

All that this line is is a SCCS directive. SCCS uses this line
to enable the mcs -p command. This prints all sorts of info
extracted from the binary file.

If you do not need this you can delete the line from your source
code. This will not affect the performance of the program in
any way.

Hope This will help you. Don't hesitate to ask if there are more
problems.

Leendert.
