Fixed in CVS, should work for any gcc from 2.95 to 3.3 now.

gcc 2.95 has forward compatible headers for all the other include's[*],
but not ostream.h. So we still get ~four "depreciated" warnings when
compiled with gcc 3.3, but that's better than it not working at all with
gcc 2.95.

[*] i.e. gcc's fault, not any particular linux distro's, AFAICT.

We may have to think of something else if gcc 3.4 drops backwards

by the way, does it *really* only compile with gcc/g++? What's the
problem exactly?
