This bug is caused by kdemultimedia compilation flag "-pedantic" +
"-ansi".  If I removed these flags from all configure settings on
alpha, then the compilation becomed ok.  (But it failed at kmidi.cpp
on alpha if I removed "-pedantic" - it's another bug of

Kdemultimedia needs to use linux kernel headers, and some linux kernel
headers are not ready for strict ANSI.  Well it's good idea to fix all
linux kernel headers as "GCC -pedantic -ansi ready" but it's minor
issue.  If you compile all sources with -pedantic, then you encounter
a lot of compilation problems.

I recommend you not to use -pedantic for kdemultimedia.  Is there any
reason to add this -pedantic flag for this software?  Could you remove
such flags and recompile?  I also think it's good idea to check and
update a lot of warnings and configure.

And then, I saw this URI that SuSE guys encountered this problem; it
seemed they also suggested the answer which I found at last.


BTW, I would like to know why ISO C++ forbits braced-groups.
