I sent it to the bug reporter, to the bug tracking system, and (I had
thought) to debian-devel.  But checking out the archive, I realized I
had only sent it to the first two.

Anyway, gcc has only one difference from .1:  it compiles code
be default which works with libc6 instead of libc5.  Basically, it sets
the dynamic linker's name to /lib/ld-linux.so.2 instead of
/lib/ld-linux.so.1.  Since you probably don't have libc6 installed, it
couldn't find the dynamic linker, and so linux refused to execute the
binaries it produced.  So unless you're testing out libc6, don't use gcc
