Actually, this was compiled on GCC 2.95.3.

I _did_ manage to get a working VM from the latest sourceforge after a bit
of housecleaning...new VMMaker, the latest OSProcess, etc.  It runs
fine now with the latest bits, but it still cannot open the serial port.
Actually -opening- the serial port seems fine...it claims to have opened
it, but is not reading any bits from it.  If I use my older 3.1 VM on
the 3.2 image, it works fine however...

I'll look into this tonight after work and see if it's something
a bit more general to SerialPort.  I'm positive my code works on 
the equivalent Windows image and latest VM. (err...let me caveat that
by saying I'll try it again and make -sure- it works on the Windows VM)

However, I -did- notice that I could not build the SerialPort plugin as
'internal'..when I did so, VMMaker complained about a missing key.  It only
compiled as 'external'.
