Most of the update WWW pages list GCC/libc/binutils as needing to be
upgraded to move to 2.0. Is this really necessary? I know doing so
(and recompiling offending programs) will get rid of
fcntl_setlk() called by process 105 (agetty) with broken flock() emulation
but I just upgraded several boxes to 2.0 while still using gcc 2.6.3 and
libc 4.7.4. These are even totally a.out systems. They seem to work,
but I've done a whole lot of testing.
