Jeff,

I used the term "your latest commits" to describe the moment when these
errors occurred first.

The only problem is the mysterious 2.96 that RedHat shipped with their
distribution < 8.0 (now they're using gcc 3), which is based on an
unofficial snapshot from GNU that was never meant to be released plus
further bugfixes by RedHat.

The RedHat version's c++ name mangling is incompatible with any gcc 2 as
well as with any gcc 3. So you cannot use _static_ RedHat system
libraries for linking code produced by any other compiler version.

Shared libs / dynamically linked binaries are working without any
problems. I'm using 2.95.3 on my RedHat system for anything except
kernel compilation since ever without any failure.

Actually, I installed a variety of gcc versions on my RedHat box, put
them all in /opt/gcc-<version> directories and can easily switch by
setting the GNU_DIR in the configure files. Just build the gcc from
sources with "./configure --prefix=/opt/gcc-<version" and make/install.

You will also need to build a recent version of the binutils package and
re-install it (using the same configure command line) into every of
these gcc directories. Re-installing will do - no need to recompile.

That's it. (You may need to update /etc/ld.so.conf and 'ldconfig'.)

Ralph
