| Easily done. I'll add that as a separate patch from (1).

OK, I picked up the most recent snapshot of gcc (as of yesterday,
anyway) and built it, then started compiling Octave.  I'll fix the
simple namespace qualifier problems, and I've fixed the mx-inlines
problems by prefixing all those functions with mx_inline_ (which makes
more sense anyway, as those are global names, and now it is easier to
figure out where they might be defined).

I'm not sure about the streams stuff yet.  I'll have to see what
happens when I reach that point (still compiling, I guess I need
faster hardware).
