Hmm .. I just build CVS Ocaml branch release308 on 
x86-64/amd64 platform with gcc 4.0 .. seems to work:

skaller@rosella:/work/ocaml$ ./ocamlc.opt -version
3.08.3+3 (2005-05-18)

However I get another problem:

../../boot/ocamlrun ../boot/camlp4r -nolib -I ../boot q_MLast.cmo
pa_extend.cmo -o pa_o_fast.ppo -verbose pa_o_fast.ml
