nmap fails to compile w/ gcc-3.x and glibc-2.3.2

System info:
        linux-2.6.0-test9-mm2
        gcc-3.3.1
        glibc-2.3.2

Hello all,
        I am just about at my wits end here...

        While trying to compiling nmap-3.48, it craps out with libpcap-possiblymodified. (error included at end.)  
        
        Searching on line, I have found that it might possibly be a problem between glibc and kernel headers??? 
                http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=11853
        
        However, I doubt this as trying to copile the latest libpcap release (libpcap-0.7.2) libpcap itself craps out 
with the same error.

        But when I try to compile libpcap-current (the daily build from libpcap cvs repository).  It compiles without a 
hitch.

Therefore: 

I was wondering if this error has been fixed in nmap cvs?
also, is there a publicly accesible cvs tree for nmap?
 

On a side note: 

nbase
libpcre
nmapfe
nsock 
        all compile successfully from within their respective src dirs

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

                                                Thanks,
                                                        xxd
