If you get error like:

mac/mac-802_11Ext.h: In member function ‘u_int32_t PHY_MIBExt::getHdrLen11()’:
mac/mac-802_11Ext.h:176:19: error: expected primary-expression before ‘struct’
mac/mac-802_11Ext.h:176:41: error: ‘dh_body’ was not declared in this scope
mac/mac-802_11Ext.h:176:51: error: ‘offsetof’ was not declared in this scope

open that file and add

#include <cstddef>

to the header files.

tools/ error: cannot call constructor `GammaRandomVariable::GammaRandomVariable'
tools/ error: for a function-style cast, remove the redundant
make: *** [tools/ranvar.o] Error 1
ns make failed

This is because GCC 4.5 does not like the X::X() style construct used in the NS2 source code and instead prefers the X() construct (according to

Applying shadyabhi's patch solves the issue for me.

@shadyabhi Are you sure this wouldn't break the functionality?
