This is odd; surely it will compile with gcc 2.95.x or gcc 3.0.x? Or
is a needed library missing?

I would suggest ensuring that your compiler is up to date and that any
necessary libraries are installed. If it still doesn't work, the next
step is to contact the developers to find out whether a patch is
available that would overcome your problem.
