Non compilation with the mainstream GCC version means that workarounds have to be used which don't always work. Building from source, is also a prerequisite to inclusion as a package in Debian/Ubuntu as well as other distros.
Prima facie, it seems that updating some files for headers along with make files for some OEM dependencies which hard code the GCC version should do the job. May need to update the 3rd party components.
Easier Mapguide build experience. First step towards inclusion in official repos.
Build and run usual unit tests.
Google through the GSOC program.
