Thanks Noel,

You were pretty close and gave me a correct clue!

The problem is not really the gcc 3.4.6 compiler itself, but the libffi that comes from the gcc 3.x versions.
libffi is copied and modified within the mz-scheme source directory, however it has never been updated a more current gcc 4.x version.

patching 3 files does the job. (see another post in this thread).
