Thanks for looking into this. Debian testing recently gave me a new GCC version
and I've just been ignoring the fact that I can't build cairo any more. If only
the day had more hours...
"Yeah. And subdir-objects is broken for the way we have our build set up at the
moment (libdricore built from a separate directory, on the same .c files as core)."
That's exactly what cairo is doing with cairo-time.c. Eric Anholt didn't say in
his comment what exactly can go wrong, but I still think that we need to "hack
this up differently" before we can go to subdir-objs.

Any ideas how we could fix things properly?
We could move all of cairo-time.c into cairo-time.h, but that seems like a hack.
We could create a libtool convenience library containing cairo-time.c and link
it into both places that need it, but that seems like too much work for too
We could make the _cairo_time functions part of cairo's API, but obviously
that's a bad idea.
