Not just the gcc version, but _how_ the function is declared.  'static
inline' is okay, 'extern inline' without a later body is where you run
into problems.  The bug exists in older libnl headers, and has been
fixed upstream for libnl3; but while Fedora 17 ships libnl with a
patched header, Ubuntu 10.04 did not.
