First off, thanks for spotting this software and getting it this far.

However, why did you enforce gcc 3.3? I just built it on my 4.x machine
with gcc 2.95.4... Is this to restrict later gcc's, or just some gcc's?

Using the system compiler where possible might be nice; all of my
software was compiled with it, and mozilla gives direct warnings
about the plugin being compiled with a different gcc.
