The new faad test is based on trying to compile libfaad2/cfft.c (the
file broken gcc's puke on), so it shouldn't misdetect... Read your
configure.log and see if you see any error messages. BTW, the use of
`pwd` in the faad broken gcc detect is nonsensical, but it shouldn't
be causing it to fail.

But about gcc 2.95.3, it's definitely not broken, and it's still the
recommended compiler IMO.
