That was the main reason for a question to this group before opening a
Bugzilla Report.  It compiled fine on another system that used an older
version of GCC.  I compiled some other really big programs (Firefox and
the GTK libraries using GCC-4.2.3_20080130.  Everything compiled fine
with the new GCC except for NTP.  I was thinking more along the lines
that the new GCC was just being more 'picky' than in the past and that I
could just change a config variable or add a 'ifdef' somewhere that
would let GCC compile NTP.  I wanted to see if anyone else was seeing
the same thing.
