Yes, I do.  In fact, that's how I compile most of my packages since I have
such a small hard drive :)  As far as the SIOCADDRT problem, when do you
get this error?  If it's on startup, that's because sysvinit hasn't been
revised yet to conform to the new routing requirements of the 2.1 kernels
yet.  They are alot stricter but also only need one 'route' command
instead of three.

Hmmm...try turning off optimisation on the compile and see if it works
with the -mieee switch.  Worse comes to worse, check the info files on
gcc.  It has ALOT of options related to the new -m switches.

Change the -O2 to -O and it should work.  There's still a bug in the
optimisation code that Richard Henderson is trying to work out.  I have
the same problem with qmail (egcs and gcc 2.8 suffer from it still).
