(1)  Make sure you have dejagnu installed.  If you are running RH 7.1, you
     can get it from the Powertools CD, or from:
     ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/redhat-7.1-en/powertools/i386/RedHat/RPMS/dejagnu-1.4-1.i386.rpm

(2)  Go to:
     http://www.codesourcery.com/gcc-snapshots/

     Download the latest SRC RPM.  Do *NOT* download any binary
     RPM, since they are compiled on RH 6.2, and there is a slight
     incompatibility between the libc in RH 6.2 and RH 7.1.

(3)  rpm --rebuild gcc-snapshot-whatever.src.rpm

(4)  The binary rpm files will be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
      I usually install gcc-snapshot and gcc-snapshot-c++
