[R] which compiler

This is perhaps a little off-topic, but I am curious as to what compilers
people use to compile R (under unix/linux).  I am primarily interested in
the use of egcs or gcc, g77 or f2c, etc.  It seems most of the gcc
interest and development is towards egcs, and while a gcc 2.8.1/g77
combination did work and compile R on my primary linux machine, it also
managed to produce kernels that did not allow me to run X.  I have
reinstalled (?? it's a machine at home) and have re-made my
kernels, but I'm a little baffled as to what to do next.  I admit my gcc
2.8.1/g77 installation was a bit odd but before I try and redo things I
thought I'd find out what everyone else is using.
