You can switch to GCC 2.95 instead, as below :-

Mac OS X

According to Brad Crittenden, GNU CSSC fails to compile under Mac OS X
with the default compiler (GCC 3.1).  However, it does work with the
alternate compiler, GCC 2.95.  To switch compilers, execute the
command "sudo gcc_select 2".  To switch back, issue the command "sudo
gcc_select 3".  You may also find it helpful to read the Porting Guide

If you attempt to compile with GCC 3.1. you may see the following error :-
g++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.     -g -O2 -c file.cc
filelock.h:50: storage size of `_ZTI9file_lock' isn't known

I don't know how to fix this error in any other way than to use GCC
version 2.95 instead, as described above.
