Some packages build with -Werror, which turns all compiler warnings into 
fatal errors. The directory-search order thing is new with gcc-3.1, and 
counts as a warning, which -Werror converts into an error. You can either 
edit the Makefile to remove -Werror (some packages will have a configure 
option to do this) or add the switch mentioned in the warning message to 
your CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS before configuring.
