It happens here too, after I moved to Ubuntu 8.10 (I was trying to build
from maint-viewer-11).

After a bit of searching I found this message

I'm not sure this is related. However I managed to work around the first
error message by adding "%s" as explained there. The error appeared 
again during the build process, so I didn't bother to continue.

If I get it correctly, this problem depends on g++ version we're using.
If yes, could anyone please suggest a clean way for me to install 
a different g++ version, and use that one to build the SL viewer?
