FWTools is built with gcc 3.2.3.  I think you should be able to build
against FWTools with gcc 4.1 if you use only the C API, and if can convince
your compiler to use at least a compatible libc.  Actually, I'm not too sure
what happens when you have a mixture of libc and libstdc++ versions in one

Generally speaking FWTools on linux isn't aimed at use for development,
though as long as it is convenient I do try to deliver include files and other
developer support.
