fileutils segmentaion fault && gcc compilation error

It *IS* true that redhat is applying its own non-sane patches to MOST
packages it ships. Look for "redhat 8.0 kde Taiwan" in google if you
don't believe me. I've found that MANY RedHat distros (rawhide, 8.0,
other betas, 7.x series) use NON-STANDARD gcc/glibc combinations/patches
which then BREAK if you attempt to compile something else on them (such
as gcc 3.2)

because the same compiler as in rh7.3 (2.96), some time ago i had 
problems with it in rh7.2; since change to slack with gcc 2.95.3 there 
are no more problems.

i'm not 100% sure, but there might be problems in future because wrong 
compiler; if there is someone with a lot of experience than please 
correct me; as far as i know, guys from red hat have used modified 
compilers for theirs systems;

i used to have some strange problems with compilation on rh machines 
(not only with lfs) and after distro had been changed, problems left.

but, maybe, i'm too purist to clean base system ;)

laco.
