because it's actually a common error to have builds that *used* to
work with gcc-3.x.x now fail with gcc-4.x.x for precisely the reason i
mentioned -- gcc-4 is a much stricter compiler.  and it was entirely
likely that someone would reply with, "yeah, that's definitely

so i figured i'd just make a general post to start with and leave open
that possibility, rather than get into horrendous detail if the
solution was that general.
