    One particular application for which gcc 3.x *and* gcc 2.96.x are
    seriously deficient, at least on Intel/AMD 32-bit systems, is the
    high-performance linear algebra library Atlas. As a result, *my* default
    for compiling numerical applications is the Atlas-recommended one,
    2.95.3. For the kernel, I use whatever the Red Hat 7.2 default is.
