Fedora has switched to GCC 4.4, just like Arch has.
I can only assume that Animata does not compile with Fedora,
since it does not compile with Arch.

These are the major distros that use GCC 4.4 right now (source:
* OpenSUSE
* Fedora
* Mandriva
* Arch

I did fix several errors, trying to make Animata compile, but it
quickly became apparent that a bit of quick patching would not be

In my point of view, these are two solid arguments for why you would
want to support version 4.4:
* Supporting GCC 4.4 is about actually following the C++ standard
rather than supporting an entirely new featureset.
* 4.4 will quickly become more widespread than version 4.3.

My conclusion is that this is not my problem or a problem with GCC,
but a problem with Animata.
You can choose to fix it or not, but now at least you know that it
does not compile.
