 To verify the fixes I have recently posted I switched to my personal 
development environment, which is still based around GCC 4.1.2, for 
reasons the details of which I do not wish to dive into here.

 This has revealed a couple of build issues across 3 targets, out of 183 I 
have been running testing with.  Given that our vast majority of targets 
builds just fine with this compiler and that the issues turned out both 
straightforward to fix and not to require extra maintenance burden I have 
decided to propose them for inclusion.  I believe we have no need to 
artificially limit support for older compiler versions if that is not 
going to cause us any hassle long-term.

 See individual change descriptions for details.
