Carl: what version of GCC are you using?  Recent code on HEAD has been
using C99 syntax, which means you need gcc >= 3.x to compile the code.
Due to recent patches by a certain developer (who shall remain nameless)
gnucash is no longer buildable with gcc 2.9x.

Linas: you should be more careful to try to maintain gcc 2.9
compatibility by declaring all variables at the top of your function
