building kde4 with old compilers ?

I'm seeing quite a few places where I have to make small changes
for gcc 3.3 to grok the code...

More or less, it's always the same: gcc 3.3 can't grok a composite
constructor like 

KDirSelectDialog dialog(KUrl(), true, this);

so I have to split it into an extra temp variable like

    KUrl k;
    KDirSelectDialog dialog(k, true, this);

Is there a better solution ? can I commit fixes for this kind of problem
without any objection ?
