Well, I 'fixed' this by changing above line to:
= { 0, 0, { 0 }, { 0 }, };
and repeating this change (deleting the braces) about 15 times in 2 or 3 other
files of iptables. (patch available on request)
Of course gcc shouldn't die but issue a useful message if/when syntax rules
may have changed.

Apart from that and a hand-edited arch/alpha/vmlinux.lds that got some
newlines wrong, the kernel compiled fine and is up for over a day now.
Though this is not intel but alpha (ev4 / AXPpci33).

Marvin:~$ uname -a
Linux Marvin 2.4.0-test13pre4-ac2 #13 Sun Dec 24 15:26:57 UTC 2000 alpha unknown
Marvin:~$ uptime
8:19pm up 1 day, 4:28, 4 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
Marvin:~$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/alpha-unknown-linux-gnu/2.97/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-20001211/configure --enable-threads --enable-shared --prefix=/usr --enable-languages=c,c++
gcc version 2.97 20001211 (experimental)


I use iptables for masquerading my local ethernet and that works as expected
so far.

Thorsten.
