Which handles this case, but what about future Apple changes/improvements that 
break 3.2?  Do we let khtml fork again, or suck it up now and admit that 
users with 3.2 will probably have troubles compiling kdelibs from time to 
time unless we have a developer assigned to make sure that Apple merges are 

IMO we should support the oldest version of gcc which produces correct code 
and doesn't take a ton of developer time to ensure is working.
