Yeah. I'm on VC5 too. I did get it to compile once a few weeks ago
(perhaps when I was screwing around with whether I needed gcc or not), and
haven't rebuilt that module since.

However, I did a make realclean the other day and have been dead in the
water since. The fix is probably pretty easy, but nothing's jumping out at
me, and I'm never sure which of the auto* files I should be checking.

Oh well. For the time being, I've just hacked my local copy of compat.h to
get past this.
