Does emulators/wine really need gcc 3.3?

Hi there,

Wanted to install wine yesterday and found that it's configured to
depend on the gcc 3.3 port. However, commenting out that dependency also
leads to a successful build with 5.1's compiler:

flynn at scienide% uname -srnm
FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE-p10 i386
flynn at scienide% cc -v
Using built-in specs.
Configured with: FreeBSD/i386 system compiler
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2.2 [FreeBSD] 20030205 (release)

I remember having built wine on some loonix box with gcc 3.2 in the
past, so I take it should work in FreeBSD with that compiler as well.
