GDAL is not optional in GRASS 6. --without-gdal should be removed but
--with-gdal=where/it/is must stay.

Does FC4 provide a gcc-3.3 package, even if not used by default?

looking at the CVS record for lib/gmath/numerical.h we see Brad put 
in a GCC4 fix for that file 3 weeks ago.


How old's your 6.1 snapshot?

(try for yourself first, but be warned:)
Apparently v.in.ascii is broken this weekend. Try a snapshot from a few
weeks back. If you can't find one, grab from the cvs using a specific 
date, e.g. I know it was ok on 17 May. (cvs checkout -D datespec)
See the CVS page for info:  http://grass.ibiblio.org/devel/cvs.php

but then, some of Brad's 64bit & GCC4 fixes have come in only this month. :)

So if v.in.ascii doesn't work for you, you'll have to use an old CVS 
snapshot and merge in any GCC4 fixes since then. ? catch 22..

After generating the surface you can copy the mapset to another computer
for NVIZ. Just worry about the surface. You're not going to get very far 
without lib/gmath, so focus on that first. I expect v.in.ascii will be 
working soon (but I'm not working on it).

best of luck,
