error during make

I downloaded 2 applications known as gaol and mathlib. I logged in as root and untared both mathlib and gaol.

For mathlib, I did a ./configure, make, and make install and everything is OK.

For gaol I did the same. This application uses the mathlib library. I did a ./configure, but when I do a make I get the follwoing error:
goal_mathlib.h visibility arg must be one of hidden, protected or internal

I have never seen this error before, and it DOES NOT seem to be a permission problem

Any ideas, Thanks

On the sourceforge project page
there was some hint:
Release 1.2.1 for gcc with -fvisibility
if you follow the link you get this explanation:
This version uses the -fvisibility option of gcc to optimize the dynamic export table. Should not be used with gcc versions that do not support the option.
