Additional information about Apple gcc-3.5-tree-ssa:
This compilier will be included in MacOS X 10.4, it might even be avaliable as
an update for OSX 10.3 and less *before* 10.4 is released.
So we might want to get all the issues resolved *before* lots of people try to
compile with this compiler.

Note:

all "invalid conversions" can be worked around with the gcc-flag "-fpermissive"
(at least in OS X.3.5 on a G4).
This does *not*, however, work around bug 257108.

But as some of the datatypes might cause problems on 64bit machines, we should
not use this workaround.

I think that this is probably invalid, along with everything that it's dependent
on.  We now build with Apple's shipping 4.0 compiler (their second attempt as
released with Xcode 2.1, their first attempt in 2.0 had bugs).  In Apple-land,
3.4 and 3.5 were mere stops along the developmental continuum.  Of everything
here, anything that's an actual bug of ours has probably already been FIXED
already, others are most likely INVALID.  Martin, if anything here still
presents a problem for you, please make a note.  Otherwise, these can just be
closed out.

IIRC, any 3.5-generation compiler from Apple was at best a preview for developers at WWDC and the like; it's no longer a part of the Tiger SDK for example, and definitely not supported by Apple. Who gets to close bugs?

In the absence of any response, I take it upon myself to clean up the bug db.
