Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-11-19 20:19:15 UTC
libstdc++ v2 (found e.g. in gcc-2.95.x and gcc-2.96-RH) never claimed to be
100% ISO C++ 98 conforming, this is just one of the cases. With g++ 2.95.x
you'll get the same result.
If you want this to work, you can use gcc 3.0.x (e.g. found in RHL 7.2
gcc3* rpms).
