    GCC 3.2 is broken by design. It insists, amongst other stupidities, on
    type-checking arguments using old style declarations like:

            int foo(bar)
            char *bar;

    rendering most UNIX software from before 1996 uncompilable. This is
    biting one of my ports, I can't figure out how to shut the fscking thing
    up, and am pretty much beyond caring. The Powers That Be in GCC-land
    seem to have decided for us the world doesn't need any stinking
    20-year-old software.

            Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket?
