Make sure you're using egcs 1.1.1 when trying to compile the kernel. gcc
(on RedHat 7.x at least) is gcc 2.96, a non-existant beta release which
can't compile a Linux kernel. You need to set CC=kgcc to compile the
kernel. RedHat 7.x should install a copy of egcs 1.1.1 as kgcc. You just
have to make sure you use it.
