> 1:) How can I fix this?
Whack-a-mole until you're confident everything works correctly. It's a
matter of trial and error.
> 2:) Why FreBSD 4.10 is using such an old compiler?
Nobody has upgraded it. What's there is stable and works; nobody has
volunteered to replace it, test, and assure that all is correct.
Efforts are going toward RELENG_5 and CURRENT. ]Note that I do not
speak in any official capacity, and am open to corrections, but would be
surprised if anyone disagreed.
> 3:) Has anybody tested FreeBSD 4.10 with gcc-3.4.X?
No. See above URLs; gcc 3.4 scared me, so I backed off to 3.3.
