gcc 3.2.1 is out and avoids the warnings about -I/usr/local/include
shown by 3.1 and 3.2.

Unfortunately, it seems to generate invalid code on 32-bit Solaris 2.7.
(64-bit code via -m64 is OK.)  On two separate installations
example(Bessel) crashes in graphics.c because dd is not being passed down
from clipText correctly.  I don't think that is all, as compiling
graphics.c under gcc-3.2 leads to other errors elsewhere.  So use gcc-3.2.1
with caution on Solaris.
