[Here's a link on the supposedly-but-not-actually broken GCC shipped
with RedHat, which among other things gives you some nice tips about
correctly coding in C: http://www.redhat.com/advice/speaks_gcc.html]
The question remains... why upgrade your compiler just to compile the
sources from an SRPM, perhaps I'm attempting feigned elitism, but is that
not like using an elephant gun for a mouse? Why not make life easy and just
get the kernel sources from ftp.kernel.org and apply any patches you want to
that source instead of upgrading the compiler on a development server?
