I believe that is an easy fix by making sure the text on these lines start
and end with a double-quote, because older gcc allowed the text to wrap to
next line. (Can you look at that and submit a patch? Then again this is a
problem you don't care about because you don't want old gcc.)

Normally it should be 2.8.0 (on systems with gcc 3 too). This is the
minimum so newer (bigger) is okay too.

I wonder if USE_GCC2 is set on your system to force 2.95.3?
