yes, nothing need to change in theory.

But in practice no compilers could be full compatible with the C/C++
standards.  I mean we should try to workaround the bugs and make Gnash
build with common compilers. I believe we can make it without any
significant changes in the source code. Probably a few lines of coding
style changes would be enough acoording to my experience. Note that
Gnash did compile on Fedora6 for many times(but also failed many times
due to the mystery ".gnu.linkonce..." bug).
