If there is it would be in the slink era.

getting gcc to co exist is not an easy task. 2.91 is really out of date, you
especially do not want it for C++ code. Compiling the kernel or a few other
items may even fail.
Rather than a full install why not make a minimal RH system on a test machine
and then tar it up to be used as a chroot? Compile what much be compiled in
there almost like a cross-compile setup.
