  The "GCC 2.96" that Red Hat ships is still (1) not a "real" GCC release
and (2) rather new.  GCC 3.x is a "real" release but is even newer.  Both
may have behaviors with LVM does not like.  The LVM code may have bugs which
the more "traditional" GCC 2.91 allows but newer GCCs do not.

  All in all, while Red Hat's "GCC 2.96" may work, it is a good idea to try
a more conservative compiler release when problems occur.
