I've made these small changes and committed them. I wouldn't
think that GCC would require those (void *) casts, but better
to do the correct thing anyway. If you update from CVS you
should have these changes.

I'm thinking this is probably best left to each developer
to figure out... on our Solaris 7 system I just made cc
a link to gcc, and moved Sun's cc out of the way (useless
as it is). You could probably just set your "CC" environment
variable and it should be read by the configure script.
