From the recent xcircuit discussion, i've realized that many problems in porting software comes from not reading or not interpreting the compilers error messages correctly. Getting a handle on compiler errors is vital in porting code that is correct and does what it is supposed to do.

I think we should get the compiler working back under SGI!
