Coincidentally, I just upgraded our x86_64 box to FC5, and the nightly 
build fell over with exactly these errors.  It turns out that the HEAD 
already had fixes in some arch's for this, but it was fixed by making 
StgRunIsImplementedInAssembler() non-static.  The attribute fix is 
better, so I've applied it consistently and merged to 6.4.2.
