I've done this yesterday:
main.c, line 2161 or so...

        printf("  %s, %s\n", h->long_opt, h->short_opt);
        printf("%s\n", h->short_opt);
#endif /* HAVE_GETOPT_LONG */

instead of 

           "  %s, "
#endif /* HAVE_GETOPT_LONG */


#endif /* HAVE_GETOPT_LONG */

should be ok (it worked fine for me), and no need for some old
compatibility flags. 

I personally don't like the idea of having installed two different 
versions of gcc, so it's better for me to play around with the
new compiler and sometimes with the sources to get it run on my
machine... Next problem: cdrtools. Let's see if i can make them
run over the weekend.
