I tried to install gcc-3.3.3 with gcc-4.3 and had the same error you
did, and that reinforces my first thought:

My first thought is that gcc-3.3.3 is VERY old (especially for C++)
and you are probably trying to deal with old, non-standard code that
need fixing (including gcc-3.3.3).  I've run into the same kinds of
problems with old C and FORTRAN code and eventually had to bite the
bullet:: fix the old code and bring it into the 21st century.  It
sounds like you're fortunate enough to at least have the original
source code, so you can fix it.

But as a last resort, try to find old 3.3.3 binaries, perhaps even
making a clean installation of Fedora Core 2 (or whichever old FC had
3.3.3 as the default gcc).


BTW, I think your "mentor" is not keeping up with the times.
