Hm, recently gcc40 has been supported by Caolan, but I'm sure
after next few milestones we must raise some gcc40 issues.

BTW: I had been porting OOo to Mac OS X, and I used Xcode 1.5, gcc-3.3.
gcc-3.3 has a bug in parser, and Hamburg team do not use gcc-3.3, so
we raised many issues, and integration can take time (1-2 weeks).
