Description of problem:
on the gcc official site i read:
* GCC 3.2 has a number of C++ ABI fixes which make its C++ compiler generate
binary code which is incompatible with the C++ compilers found in earlier GCC
releases, including GCC 3.1 and GCC 3.1.1.
*  The C++ ABI now conforms to the V3 multi-vendor standard.
this is annoying: the 3.0 and 3.1 versions were already incompatible with 2.9x
versions and earlier, now it happens again for 3.2 !!!
in any case this is unavoidable, imho. you will have to upgrade the gcc to 3.2,
if not now then for redhat 8.1, so start now, drop gcc 3.1 and upgrade to 3.2,
you will have less problems later, i think.
hopefully gcc abi won't change  again after 3.2, so you will be able to mantain
compatibility for all of the redhat 8.x releases.
