Which OS are you using that you're forced to this ancient GCC version?

comment:2 by SF/fizzet, 18 years ago

The problem isn't my OS (Linux), but the fact that the gcc people make their product iterations ABI-incompatible and thus make upgrading a system a real pain...

Well, I still don't consider this a bug. Feel free to file a feature request and we'll consider trying to make GCC 2.95 work again. Or even better, submit patches (if you are able to, I mean). As it is, supporting ancient and outdated compilers is far from the top of our priority list...

Though you might want to try building HEAD SVN instead, it might work better.
