This is also my experience when gcc is 2.95.2. The other ordeal of
fire is compiling the glibc and this I didn't try (I heard it fails).

I have compiled everything for all the variants of the x86
architecture when I built the RPM when compiling witrh 2.2.13 ad it
worked. Of course I was unable to exercise the whole code.
I remember to have had a program who compiled on egcs and didn't on
gcc 2.95 but I don't remember if it was C++ (gcc 2.95 implements a
higher level of C++)
About GCC chenging I was not speaking of Gcc 2.95.2 going to gcc 3 or gcc
2.96 (major steps) but to 2.95.3 (bug fixes)
