I still think the latest release version is all you need, but what do I 
know? :)

Trying to test our nightly snapshots gets you into fun areas like the -Werror 
stuff where the build breaks on warnings as if they were errors, which works 
fine on gcc 4.0 and earlier under i386, but not so well on gcc 4.1 which 
produces _stupid_ warnings for things that are _not_ broken...

Sigh.  Tweaked the makefiles today so gcc 4.1 doesn't have -Werror because I 
don't think we're _ever_ going to fix some of those.  That compiler version 
is just _broken_...

Never bet against the cheap plastic solution.
