We currently support gcc>=3.3. We don't care about 3.0-3.2 since they 
are said to be terribly buggy (not that I never check that by myself 
anyway). As for gcc 2.95, your "compile fix" is far from sufficient to 
make it work anyway, and it would be a big waste of time. Older 
versions are clearly out of scope.

icc 8.0 also works fine (on condition that your bootstrap with 
autoconf>=2.59c) if you don't feel like using open-source compilers.

Even FreeBSD 4.x should be able to compile VLC (with USE_GCC=3.3+).
