This is true for virgin RH7.0, but there is an update out that
fixes any backward compatibility problems. I'm running gcc version
2.96.69 and while I'm not compiling the ldm, I have not had any
problems compiling anything else.

BTW, RH 7.1 is now out too, I'd imagine after the 7.0 fiasco
that they are using something more compatible by default this time.
