Oh, really?

| COMPILING the kernel:
|
| - Make sure you have gcc-2.91.66 (egcs-1.1.2) available. gcc 2.95.2 may
| also work but is not as safe, and *gcc 2.7.2.3 is no longer supported*.
| Also remember to upgrade your binutils package (for as/ld/nm and company)
| if necessary. For more information, refer to ./Documentation/Changes.

(2.4.18 linux/README)

linux/Documentation/Changes is more helpful, though.
