gcc 2.96 is not a real release, more of a redhat branch off the 3.0 dev tree
that gnu disavows.  There are notes somewhere about this but I couldn't
quickly find the link.  I would consider anything that 2.96 does or does not
do, to be a laboratory curiosity.  Can you compile a linux kernel with
either 2.96 or 3.2?

I think debian installs 2.95.4, but also has a 3.0 version.  I use 2.95.x
and have no problems.
