modification time in the future

I have just installed gcc 3.1, and i am getting a lot of error messages in my compiling. gettext 0.11.2 wouldn't work, and now i am getting all kinds of error messages that say something along the lines of "toggle in clock detected" and other stuff i can't reallly remember. do you think i am missing dependancies? if so which ones should i install before i upgrade glibc & gcc?

This means that your sysem clock has changed with the time moving back into the past.

You can probably safely ignore this, or just 'make clean' and recompile.

If gcc compiled OK, all dependencies are installed. It may be that you're using libraries from old gcc, such a mixture is not very good. Check your PATH settings (if gcc3.1 was installed from source, you should have path to it there) and /etc/ (are all library directories correct, especially /usr/local/lib - when gcc installed from source?).
If you get more clock errors, look at your time (using 'date' command). Make sure it's correct. A journey into past may be very bad when compiling.
