The Fiasco 1.1. release was almost 3 years ago. On the other hand, your
compiler is so new that it has not even been officially released yet.
It is not surprising that a bleeding-edge compiler does not build an old
piece of software.

If there is no particular reason for you to stick to Fiasco-1.1, I suggest you
upgrade to 1.2 or CVS. Or you build 1.1. with gcc-3.x series.
