I apologize again for forgetting to say that the developer told me 
that synopsis requires gcc 3.*
I have been unable to download and build anything above 3.1.1

fetch fails for gcc32

CVS checkout fails for gcc33 (which appears to be 3.2 actually)

And... I get an error building Simon's port using gcc 3.1.1:

    member function `PyObject* Translator::SourceFile(AST::SourceFile*)':
    conversion from `const char*' to `char*'
gmake: *** [syn/Translator.o] Error 1
gmake: Leaving directory 
error: command 'sh' failed with exit status 2
*** Error code 1

(Nevertheless I feel very good about being so much further along!)
