The recommended compiler for all current i386 Linux kernels (2.2.x and
2.4.x), is egcs 1.1.2.  Kernel 2.4 will not even compile with,
and 2.95.2 is known to be buggy, especially with regard to 'long long'
handling on 32-bit platforms.

It would be nice if someone could revive 'egcc' from the dead.
Actually it should be renamed 'kgcc' for compatibility with Red Hat,
Mandrake and Conectiva.
