I found why the Debian package fails to compile with gcc 2.95, the 
following patch fixes the problem:

--- debian/rules.old	2004-01-27 12:14:28.000000000 +0100
+++ debian/rules	2004-01-27 12:14:39.000000000 +0100

 		--libexecdir=/usr/bin \
                 --enable-compile-warnings=minimum \
-                --enable-iso-c \

After applying this patch and adding the small diff from Gnumeric
bug 131967 [1] (already fixed in upstream cvs) Gnumeric compiles with 
gcc 2.95.

You might argue whether there's a bug in gc 2.95 with -ansi involved, 
but since gcc 2.95 is a dead branch there's not much use in a bug 
against gcc-2.95.

It's your choice whether you prefer to apply this patch or to leave this 
bug as wontfix.
