i'm assuming this is just a specific example of the more general
statement that a lot of the older software won't compile under the
newer gcc-4.x compiler, right?  i went through exactly this trying to
build a toolchain using "crosstool" and, when i moved to FC4, all
kinds of things broke until i gave up on using the older software and
just went with the latest versions of everything.
