Depending on the vendor, you need to install the package (.rpm/.deb/etc.) that
includes the header files from your distribution. Under Red Hat Linux this is
glibc-devel. Note, there are compability issues between the newest C compiler
and the C++ libraries installed on your system. Also, some versions of the
kernel do not take kindly to being compiled with a new compiler.
