Fwiw I was considering proposing committing some patches for these old
releases to make them easier to build. I would suggest creating a tag
for a for this stable legacy version and limiting the commits to just:

1) Disabling warnings
2) Fixing bugs in the configure scripts that occur on more recent
systems (version number parsing etc)
3) Backporting things like the variable-length array code that prevents building
4) Adding compiler options like -fwrapv
