gcc-2.95 builds and works fine on LFS 6.0. What you are having a problem
with is not the compiler, but binaries built by the compiler.
When you are moving between major LFS revisions like this, there is
always the possibility that binaries will _not_ work on a newer revision
than they were built on. It depends on a lot of factors, but in this
case since the application uses threading, you cannot use a binary built
against LinuxThreads without having a LinuxThreads-enabled glibc around
to run it against.
The major distros solve this problem by providing _both_ versions of
glibc. LFS does not do that.
