As a humble suggestion, would someone at RedHat consider building
gcc-2.95.2 RPMs for RedHat 7? I won't argue one way or another, but this
seems like an excellent way to provide choice for users (and silence
critics) Since downgrading the libraries could cause package conflicts,
perhaps these RPMs could be built into /usr/local or some other
non-conflicting directory.

As a side note, I cannot build gcc-2.95.2 from RedHat 7--it fails when
trying to build libio.
Otherwise, I would provide said RPMs myself.

Cheers,
-Geoff Hutchison

See http://gcc.gnu.org/install/specific.html#*-*-linux-gnu
for fix to make gcc-2.95.2 build under glibc 2.2.
