addressing build failures exposed by GCC-4.7

A rebuild of the archive using GCC-4.7 shows about ~330 additional build 
failures.  The rebuild was only done for Debian unstable [1], but I don't expect 
many differences compared to precise.  GCC-4.7 will become the default compiler 
for the q-series, so be prepared to address these issues.

Hints how to address the vast majority of these issues can be found at [2].

People helping with these issues should tag the debian report, and attach 
patches until the development cycle of the q-series starts.
