My current system is 3.3 (my first was 2.2.x something) with some pre 4.0 
cvs packages (gcc 3.1 and more) so using cvs is no problem.

I want gcc-3.2.1/glibc-2.3.1 (using many c++ programs - KDE) and wonder if 
someone have some post LFS experience about it.
It's still many programs that is troublesome when compiling with gcc-3.1, 
(sometimes, I have to use 3.0.4 or 2.95.3).

I think I will sleep on this one :-)

Thanks for your answer.
