The problem is that the only working gcc/c++ is egcs 1.0.3a where no
source deb currently exists - 2.95.2 is completely useless - There have
been reports of current gcc cvs to be functional except c++ which
is completely broken.

glibc 2.2 is compilable from cvs - Aeh - Some people report it does - It
doesnt for me ... Forget glibc 2.1 ...
