Yes, I can now confirm that. 4.1.1 still accepted the syntax used.

Unfortunately, no. We (Gentoo) need to support 4.1.2, too, as this is the 
latest Gentoo-supported version. Furthermore, all newer gcc (>= 4.1.2) 
versions will barf about this issue, too.

From what I found in the list archives, this was already a problem on Mac 
OS X and reported in 2003. 

IMHO, the best course of action would be to fix the underlying issue so 
that gift will be compilable on recent systems.

Of course, I'll keep on trying to fix this myself (and submit a patch) but 
I don't have much hope. :)

Best regards, Wulf
