I will let someone more qualified answer that question.

GCC-2.95 is slated to be removed from BLFS. It has been in BZ for
a long time now. There's other text in the book which points to
GCC-2.95, which has to be updated as well. I'm sure this is one that
will *have* to be done before BLFS-6.0 is released.
