 Does compiling with -fwritable-strings make it work?  I was going to point
out how string constants were stored, etc, but then I noticed that it's a
char [] not a char *.  So maybe there's a gcc bug.  BTW, compiles ok for me
on i386 sarge and on amd64 gcc-3.4 (on a workstation I installed for a
postdoc, which is now horribly out of date.  That gcc-3.4 branch probably
isn't still being maintained, is it :(
