I second that. Using gcc 3.3.1 on a standard Linux system, with glibc 2.3, a 
couple of modules in KDE don't get compiled because of errors. Removing the -
pedantic option from the command line solved the problem. I don't remember 
anymore whether the problem occurred within kernel headers included by glibc's 
includes or whether it was glibc headers. In any event, they are errors that 
shouldn't be happening.
