We only patch up ncurses, perl and vim. And, if you go to those project
sites you will find development versions and other kind of patches that
already fixed this gcc-3.1 problem. But, we don't want to upgrade ncurses,
perl and vim to the latest development snapshot, so instead what we did is
get those patches and extract only the gcc-3.1 fixes from it, while leaving
the rest of the source intact. This way the package won't be upgraded to
lastest development but will compile with GCC-3.1

The next releases of ncurses, vim and perl will all work just fine without
