I suspect a bug in that compiler, as you had problems with NAs,
and that is the only thing that seems different from known working setups.
My suggestion would be to use gcc-2.95.2, which I compiled from
source and works well for us on RH6.0. Or even try the compiler
that comes with RH6.0 (egcs-2.91.66, I believe).
