Error compiling C file with gcc (too many arguments...)

I'm trying to compile a C library file and here's the snippet:

double avg_years(int ddnum, long date, int *s_c, const short PROXIMITY)
  {
  long *d_ptr;
  int i, count, *diff;
  double avgs, *diffs;

  d_ptr=get_dates(ddnum, date, &count, s_c, PROXIMITY);

Using gcc with options -m64, -g, -ansi I am getting this error:

avg_years.c:250: error: too many arguments to function `get_dates'

The get_dates function is declared in header file as:

extern long *get_dates(int, long, int *, int *, const short);

Any help appreciated!

Thanks,
Karen

Is this the line the compiler is refering to?

Problem solved, appears the header file was defining the function without the const short.. I must have gotten this mixed up with another function, been a long day. Sorry if I've wasted anybody's time.

Thank you,
Karen
