  Not true.

  We do it all of the time.

  I think what you've done is download the git "master", instead of v3.  Look at the VERSION file, or the "git branch" output.

  The master branch requires a modern C compiler, and won't work with a compiler that's almost a decade old.

  Use the v3.0.x branch.  It *will* work.
