I heard that 2.96 is again a devel version of gcc which is sorta unstable.I
heard posting saying that we shud downgrade to 2.95 possibly.I think with RH 7.1
,u no longer need kgcc to compile things correctly.gcc itself works.In fact,i
heard sby commenting that now kgcc seems broke in RH 7.1 and so it is safe to
use only gcc in RH 7.1;while it was mandatory to use kgcc in RH 7.0!!!!
I also heard that binaries produced by gcc 3.0 are going to be somewhat
incompatible with the older binaries.
