System: Linux pcl321 2.4.17 #1 Sat Feb 23 15:19:54 CET 2002 i686 unknown
Architecture: i686

host: i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1
build: i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1
target: i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1
configured with: ../gcc-3.2/configure --host=ix86-linux-gnulibc1 --prefix=/usr --disable-nls --enable-shared --enable-languages=c++,f77,objc --bindir=/ix86-linux-gnulibc1/bin
I had severe problems building gcc-3.2 for i586-pc-linux-gnulibc1, in part
due to libc5 (5.4.38) headers, but mostly due to gcc itself.

I am not quite sure if linux-gnulibc1 is still officially supported, but I
sort of need a compiler for such systems and wanted to upgrade to

Try building gcc-3.2 on a linux-gnulibc1 system (if you still have one)

PLEASE: give me a mail address where I can send details and an attachment
with the fixes I had to apply (both to libc5's string.h and to the gcc-3.2
