[ODE] ODE-newbie: first step correct?

I'm new to ODE, and want to ask some questions in order to see if my
first step is correct.
After having downloaded ODE 0.6, I compiled and linked it
successfully (with PowerMac G5, Mac OS X 10.4.7, Xcode 2.4, GCC
4.0.1), resulting in a static library. Only a handful of adaptions
have been necessary.
I realized, that there are two header files objects.h in include/ode
and in ode/src with different contents. According to a recommendation
in the mailing list archive, I renamed the latter one to
Is it correct to change just all statements #include "objects.h" to
#include "objects_internal.h" and leave all statements #include
<objects.h> unchanged? (As far as I understand, the statements of the
second kind reference the file objects.h in include/ode. And to be
correct: I copied all relevant files into my ODE project directory,
and made the changes there.)
ODE contains OPCODE, a collision detection engine. I realized, that
there are many rather long lines filled with
slashes //////////...////////// in nearly all OPCODE files. First I
thought, it's garbage, may be created by a download failure. But then
it looks like the author uses these lines to make the code looking -
errrm - "nice".
Just to be sure: Are the OPCODE files with slash-lines correct?
Greetings and thank you in advance
