Hi Georgios,

I'm sad to hear you are having problems, especially since they are unnecessary.
Perhaps you'll be able to track this one down or someone else with more free
time than I have will be able to help you out.   I personally want to spend my
time on developing mesa rather than tracking down problems caused by old
versions of compilers.

I think your best option is to talk to your advisor(s) and light a fire under your
so-called "support" team.
