Hard to test when it doesn't compile ;-):

g++ -g -O2 -I/home/austin/gits/xgill  -Wall -Wno-non-virtual-dtor
-Wno-strict-aliasing -Werror -fPIC -c backend/backend_block.cpp -o
backend/backend_block.cpp: In function ‘bool
Xgill::Backend_IMPL::BlockWriteFile(Xgill::Transaction*, const
Xgill::Vector<Xgill::TOperand*>&, Xgill::TOperand**)’:
backend/backend_block.cpp:1457:50: error: ‘ptrdiff_t’ was not declared
in this scope
backend/backend_block.cpp:1457:61: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘preproc_length’
make: *** [backend/backend_block.o] Error 1

I emailed their devel list, haven't heard back it (it has to clear a moderator).
