SubjectRe: Possible GCC contamination of Linux
In article <Pine.LNX.3.95.990922084259.6084B-100000@chaos.analogic.com> you write:

Update your sources. egcs has been folded into gcc quite a few months ago,
and gcc 2.95.1 is fairly stable, about on a par with 2.7.2 or 2.8.1 (not the
same bugs, better code quality).

You should try it, you'll be surprised how many things have been fixed while
you were asleep.
