Doh, you're right. This is a bit suprising to say the least. So people
actually compile kernels with RH7.1's gcc2.96. :o Oh well, I guess Alan
Cox et al know what they are doing. ;)

Ok, few possible approaches:
1. install kgcc from rh7.0
2. lower optimization level
- replace -O2 with -O or remove altogether on
ecasound/configure.in line 77; then
"autoconf ; ./configure ; make ; make install"
3. install a newer compiler
- get for instance gcc 2.95.3
- "./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc-2.95.3"
- "make ; make install" (doesn't interfere with
your default 2.96 compiler)
- configure ecasound with:
"CXX=/usr/local/gcc-2.95.2/bin/c++ ./configure", then
"make ; make install"
I'd suggest to use order 1->2->3...
