[gcc 3.3.2] std::numeric_limits<long double>::singaling_NaN() bug?

I'm having a library that compiles under 3.4.4 and 4.0.1, however, when 
compiling under 3.3.2 (default compiler on SuSE Linux 9.3) I get the 
following error message

error: syntax error before `__builtin_nanf`

raised by the following fragment:

typedef long double float80;

class TFloat80 : ... {
    static const float80 NAN;

const float80 TFloat80::NAN = std::numeric_limits<float80>::signaling_NaN();

Why does it bail out here? I suppose this is a GCC/STL bug, however, is there 
a way to walk around this for GCC 3.3 builds?
