Which compiler are you using?  Since I'm running debian stable, I'm 
using g++ 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-13).  Maybe you can install 3.3.5, or 
update your alternatives to use 3.3.5, or update debian/rules to run 
configure to point to 3.3.5?

I have 3 boxes in my basement, so I setup distcc on all 3, so the 2 
changes I have made to debian/rules are:

Can you compile other stuff?  I'd say that somehow you whacked your 
compiler, and that's pretty nasty.  Perhaps a reinstall of your compiler 
is in order also.
