I cannot compile neither default kernel 2.2.16 nor new 2.2.17 - gcc shows
an error in the middle of compiling. This bug was found by many independent
users.

Use kgcc instead, the kernel unfortunetly uses what gcc 2.96 thinks is bad
syntax.

kgcc is installed as part of 'kernel devleopment'

(see long discussion/flamming on linux-kernel)

Also, if you're building in the installed source tree, you need
to run 'make mrproper' first.
