Not too bad warnings-wize excpet for the controlfb.c where it constanly
gave a funny warning about "pasting ->".
It did this for every occurence of the macro CNTRL_REG which I must admit
has two ## which I think gcc was misinterpreting somehow.
Other than that just the occaissioanal wanring about unused variables and
things like that.
I should have saved the build.log
I hate mixing compilers. I have moved my system to gcc 3.1 from Franz but
I would like to keep gcc 2.95.4 in /usr/local/ or some other place just in
case I ever need it for things like glibc and the kernel.
