looking into compiling Inkscape on Mac OS X 10.3 an error appeared
which is apparently not limited to OS X but more generally to old gcc
versions (3.3 is used here). John Faith, the investigator of these
issues, submitted a patch to configure.ac which fixes this. I am not
knowledgeable enough with autoconf to review this. Could someone
knowledgeable have a look at it and commit it or give me a go to
Thank you in advance.
