GCC 3.3.2 tells you what's wrong with the code and tells you to check
the docs to understand it.  If you'd fixed the code to remove the
warning it would have made it compile with 3.4

The implicit typename feature that was deprecated in 3.3 was removed
from 3.4, so the code is no longer accepted.

You need to say "typename" before referring to a type that is dependent
on a template parameter, to tell the compiler that the name refers to
a type and not something else (such as a variable or a function).
