Are you saying that an earlier version of MySQL++ worked with GCC 3.4.2, 
or that your switch to GCC 3.4.2 broke all MySQL++ versions?  If the 
former, please be explicit about which version worked.

My only idea is the brute force one: break the API and ABI.  I'm waiting 
for someone to come up with a better idea.  It's been a week since I 
solicited opinions, and nothing useful has come up yet.

Incorrect fix.  index is a member element of the parent class.  I don't 
know why GCC cannot see it.  I've had to add explicit qualifiers to 
MySQL++ before to work around these things.  This one looks like a GCC 
bug to me.

Instead of hacking those pragmas out -- which are necessary on some 
platforms -- why don't you send me a patch to platform.h (nee' 
mysql++-windows.hh) that will allow the MinGW GCC to skip those pragmas? 
  MySQL++ doesn't move forward on platforms I don't use without patches.

This has been fixed since 1.7.19.
