There is a known problem with certain versions of gcc, particularly
the one which is supplied with Mandrake 8.x, which results in the file
src/libes/edit/edit_cellhd.c failing to compile.

Along with the other errors, this is a consequence of src/libes/edit
failing to compile. Unfortunately, this particular error is fatal. The
programs in src/general/init comprise the GRASS startup sequence;
without these, you can't start GRASS.

However, you can solve the problem by changing the return type of
format_value() (line 105 of src/libes/edit/edit_cellhd.c) from
"double" to "void", i.e. change:

	static double format_value(...
	static void format_value(...
