These are both mine. 

The __noreturn__ attribute was to keep -Wall happy while I was hunting
down missing return statements.  It serves no other purpose.  I think
that all of the missing return-s are now accounted for, so it's not
necessary to keep this around.  Change that prototype back to:
   int G_fatal_error(char *,...);

The i.in.erdas problem is something that I created to work around a
problem in my compiler.  I should have fixed the egcs headers instead.
Delete the offending lines (45-49) and retry the compile.

i.in.erdas, as Angus said, is not usable on Alphas.  There are alignment
issues with the data definition.  It should compile cleanly, though.  
Running it produces a segfault as it tries to use an ERDAS header that
has "only" 128 bytes.
