I tried with gcc3.1.  I tried not to break 2.96 but apparently it did
break.  Perhaps it's just time to says that 2.96 is too old and too
buggy to build the v2.5 kernel.  Given that (a) 2.96 is known to
miscompile the MCA code and (b) the distros are moving to gcc3.x
anyhow, I think this isn't unreasonable.

And for those who hate to build the toolchain themselves, there is
gcc-3.1.tar.gz at  Just extract it, replace the
assembler, then do:

	make CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/gcc3.1/bin

and you should be in business.
