The SVN version should be compilable with gcc-4.4 (r19128+). However,
there are known problems with gcc-4.4 and therefore we will delay
VirtualBox packages for Fedora11 (which is not released yet).

VirtualBox seems to start fine but when shutting down a guest, the
VBoxSVC server crashes for some reason. Not sure if this is a gcc-4.4
bug or if gcc-4.4 just revealed a problem in our code, will check later.
