I hadn't so I did. No change.

All the fatal errors were the same thing, just on
different source line numbers as they occurred.

Thanks! that did it. I also had the same problem on a
couple of Debian etch-and-a-half systems but I seem to remember
it a long time back on Debian. It just wasn't an issue at the
time. Just for fun, I modified the code on one of the Debian
boxes and it compiled just fine there also.

Many thanks to all who replied both on and off list.
