I love this man !
Well, I had tried messing around with the /include files, but didn't
get it right. This line you gave builds 2.0.x kernels.
I had finally gotten a working system, by compiling 2.0.36 patched for
egcs with egcs-2.91.66 , and taking the ethernet driver rtl8139.c from
2.0.37 and compiling it with the 2.0.36 source. This finally produces
both a stable network and filesystem. The 2.0.37 and 2.2.x kernels keep
hanging on my AMD K6-2.
Now that I can build with gcc272, I have more parameters to play with !
That line should perhaps be added to /usr/doc/gcc272/README.Debian.
I cc'd this to the gcc maintainer group.
