Bingo.  Guilty as charged.  Thank you SO MUCH for this, I should have figured gcc3.2 was the culprit,
that thing is feisty!  I'll take a look at whether I can find a generic solution to this and post a patch.

Now that you mention it, I think gcc3.2 has some other interesting warnings, something about
some alignment thingys not supported anymore (probably I just change "-m$X" to "-f$X" to fix),
I'll see about those too, could well be important...
