hmmm, on rh7.3 it says this:
$> which kgcc
/usr/bin/kgcc
$> kgcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/egcs-2.91.66/specs
gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)
$>
so my question is, how differencies are between egcc-2.91.66 and gcc 
2.95.3, hope question on this will be helpfull for many people using 
rh7.x distros.
