What I always _always_ do before compiling a kernel of my own - I
compile gcc 2.95.3 from source and put it in /opt/kernel/gcc

3.x may work fine - but last I looked, 2.95.3 is the one specified in
the readme file to use if you are having problems, so I just use that
one from the start.

I do apply the LFS patches to it, they don't do anything special - but
if you only compile the C compiler - then nvidia's geforce driver won't
install properly (unless you modify the makefile in their installer to
remove the flags that really don't need to be there) - the patches that
the lfs project has takes care of that.
