Having C code checksum itself

I'd like to have my C code run a checksum on itself to detect any tampering. I thought I could do something like:

StartLabel:
      --- code---
EndLabel:

UINT *p;
UINT checksum=0;
for(p=StartLabel; p<EndLabel; p++)
      checksum^=*p;

But the compiler kicks out the " p=StartLabel" with an "undeclared identifier" , though a "goto StartLabel;" compiles fine.

Does anyone see the problem here, or have a way to do this?

Thanks
