There is a bug in the gcc-2.96-<something> (in /usr/bin/cpp, exactly)
shipped with RH-7.0. Of course, you can use

./configure --disable-more-warnings
(as it was pointed out)

but this is a workaround, not the solution. The "right" solution is to
upgrade your compiler. The simplest way is to get the compiler suite
from RH-7.1, or at least RPM from nearest "Redhat Updates" mirror. The
compiler (2.96) shipped with Redhat is a snapshot of 3.0; the snapshot
compiler suite  which was initially (in RH-7.0 era) somewhat buggy but
is are much better for C++ (not an issue for me) and generate faster
code on non-Intel architectures (like Alpha; still, they leave some
space for improvement).
