[plt-scheme] Unable to run the 103p1 version on SuSE 10

I had compiled it on Fedora Core with an old gcc (3.2), to avoid too
many error messages you get using 4.x flavours. On my SuSE platform, I
do not have such an old compiler, but I have access to a 3.3.6, which
I used to compile some parts of the software (meaning "some
directories"). Problems arise particularly in the wxxt subdirectory,
because of some obsolete syntax. So the compiling process is somewhat
untidy, but at the end I got it all compiled.
And even if I could do more uniform a compilation (same version of gcc
for all, same options), in my mind as soon as you compile it all
without errors, the sofware should work, uh?
Thanks for your collaboration.

P.S. How do you know the -O2 option is unsupported ? Can't this be
removed by the configuree process ?
