The version of gcc included in Red Hat 7.2 compiles the kernel just
fine.  In fact, it does a better job than most of the "stable"
releases of gcc in recent memory.

Red Hat included their own version of gcc in order to have a working
compiler on x86, alpha, and ia64.  They're also using on s390 now.

And the recent Red Hat versions of gcc are on a short list of
recommended compilers for 2.4.x kernels.
