I wonder.... what happens if you comment out the line "#include  
<locale>"? On my systems (Mac OS X, Ubuntu 6.06), it doesn't appear  
to be required. I guess it's residue from older code, and could  
simply be deleted.

I suspect you may run into other problems with gcc 2.95, e.g.,  
building the ICU libraries -- I'm not sure if they still support this

Do you have the gcc_select tool, to set the default compiler version?  
That would probably be the easiest approach:

     sudo gcc_select 3.3

Then Build as normal. You can of course revert to 2.95 afterwards, if  
preferred for other projects.
