yes - I know these packages should be fixed.
BUT - it does put the user trying to compile software in a
frustrating position especially when it relates to fairly important
packages like gstreamer.
The distribution has gcc32 package so you are free to use older compiler
(that possibly works).
Anyway - the maintainer of gstreamer shoud fix his package and this is
the only way to force him to do it.
We need better compiler all the time. We need to be able to use it in
Enterprise environment (like glibc with NTPL etc). This is not possible
to use 5 years old compiler with bilions of documented bugs and
workarounds included to our source code.
