(1) Segfault by the compiler, or  by your compiled code?  Are you sure
the new compiler hasn't just revealed an existing bug in your code?

(2) Look for the compat-* packages in yum to see if there's a version of
the compiler you can use.  The compat-* packages are designed to live
side by side with the main versions.  You need the main version from the
distribution to build system code for the distribution.  If the problem
is a segfault in the compiler, report the bug to bugzilla.redhat.com.

(3) If there is no appropriate compat-* package, your best bet may be to
build the version from scratch using sources from gnu.org and install
the compiler in /usr/local.
