RE: gcc doubt

I'm not sure what you are asking.  In general, you will have the best of
luck in building Linux distributions with the compiler that they were
tested with.  Gcc 2.95.3 is a rather old release, and Gcc 3.2 is
somewhat newer, but in the scope of things also an old release (of
course, redhat 8.0 is also an older Linux distribution).

I would step back, and rather than try to marry different toolchains and
distributions, try to figure out what you want to do.  I assume you want
to run a Linux distribution on an Arm box?  If so, I would search around
for a newer distribution that has a full build in it (ie, has compilers,
etc.), and use those compilers.

If you are trying to build your own distribution for new hardware, you
typically have to start with a cross compiler running on some other
machine, and use that cross compiler to build the Linux distribution for
the target machine, and then install it.  Usually you want to start with
just the basics (compiler, subset of libraries, assembler, linker,
shell, etc.) and then when you have the pieces setup, you can build the
bits on the target, and bootstrap yourself (unless your target is too
small to host a compilation system, and then you will always have to use
a cross compiler).
