I don't see any evidence that this actually worked in gcc 3.4.  In 3.4
it would make Localfoo an alias for a symbol named literally
"Foo.Foodata".  it would not make Localfoo an alias for the Foodata
field of the global variable Foo.  I think gcc4 is kindly giving you an
error for something that never actually worked.
