This is not a compiler bug, just a Headers file snafu.
In the FB Headers file Subs Graphics.incl, function RUNTIME FBFill,  
locate the code block after 'long if BaseAddr&' (between two thick  
black lines).
Try changing it to:

// fix for PPC & CarbonLib - rp 20080430
begin globals
dim as proc sColorSearchUPP
end globals
#if CarbonLib
// Leak plug - RP 24 Feb 2007
if ( sColorSearchUPP == 0 ) then sColorSearchUPP = fn  
NewColorSearchUPP( [proc "MySeedCFillMatchProc" +  
_FBprocToProcPtrOffset] )
sColorSearchUPP = proc "MySeedCFillMatchProc"

I'm a little surprised that anyone is still compiling for obsolete PPC  
format. I can't even test the code above, having only an Intel Mac.  
However it does Trial Compile with error.
