As an example, Checksum.S and components containing bits of ASM code seem
not to compile with EGCS/GCC 2.96 experimental. I don't know if this
problem is with my system or not (I've installed only RH7.0 components and
all that are necessary; I'm definitely using the GLIBC and the STD libs
from the RH7 package).
I have found though, that using an older, say 1.1.2, version of EGCS seems
to work to compile things like Checksum.S in the arch library of the linux
kernel, but it causes more errors in the long run.
