It's not our responsibility to do your legwork for you. You can easily email
the maintainers at sunfreeware.com and ask them. Since they currently host gcc
3.4.6 on their site it's a safe bet they're still using gcc 3.4.x overall.
Fyi, I have just now built the 2.4.15 source using gcc 4.0.3 on SPARC/Solaris
and all of the hash mechanisms work fine. I don't have a gcc 3.x build handy
on my system, nor do I see any reason to install a known-bad compiler just to
further demonstrate what has already been plainly documented by other folks.
