It looks like the configure script still didn't realise that it's GCC  
v4. Instead, wipe out your sources, then do

   ./configure compile:-DPLATFORM_GCC3

(that is correct to use 3, not 4)

And can you post the output of gcc --version? Maybe RedHat have  
"customised" it again.

I do love Linux. Especially the way that all the distributions change  
things subtly for no real good reason, making application authors  
adjust for every single distribution.

There is an rpm description file in the contrib directory, but  
whether it'll work on RedHat's latest wonder, who knows? Hopefully  
the Linux experts on this list will help out.
