Notice that there are RPMs of 1.1.1 for RH7.0 in the updates section
at RedHat, and of 1.2.0 in the rawhide distribution. Both were made
after the (known) remaing issues with 2.96 was fixed and errataed.
(The latter is dated Dec 19 with the release of 1.2.0 on Dec 15, but I
wouldn't expect you to be that lucky this time).

If you build from source, you *must* get the current update for gcc
