Note: sun-sparc, and Peter once told me that has nothing to do
with the compiler on Intel.

This makes me say what I thought of earlier: would be it be a good
idea for Kurt to ask those people who used gcc/egcs to give us a
version number?  AFAIK egcs is an addon for RH5.2 (ships with, does
not install by default) so it would be very easy to have a grabbed
a later rpm for egcs/ecgs-g77 (which are not even on the 1-CD version
in use here).
