#5618: configure error with gcc 4.3.1 on Gentoo

 I recently compiled the new gcc-4.3.1 on my Gentoo system. Now the MythTV
 configure does not work anymore:

 ./configure: line 2885: test: /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-4: integer
 expression expected

 I added some debugging statements that show the following:

  gcc-version: /var/tmp/portage/sys-
  GCC_MAJOR: /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/gcc-4

 running "gcc -v 2>&1 | grep version | cut -s -d' ' -f 3" returns the
 following result:

 running "gcc -v":

 Thread model: posix
 gcc version 4.3.1 (Gentoo 4.3.1-r1 p1.1)

 I made the following adjustment to the script:

 Index: configure

  check_ldflags $LDLATEFLAGS

 -gcc_version=$($cc -v 2>&1 | grep version | cut -s -d' ' -f 3)
 +gcc_version=$($cc -v 2>&1 | grep "gcc version" | cut -s -d' ' -f 3)
  GCC_MAJOR=$(echo ${gcc_version} | cut -s -d'.' -f1)
  GCC_MINOR=$(echo ${gcc_version} | cut -s -d'.' -f2)

 Is this a problem with my setup? If so, I will try to fix it here. If not,
 is this a workable solution, since I am not sure if this always works
 correctly, but it works for me.

 Hopefully this helps.
