Well, the default compiler on RH 7.1 is gcc 2.96 which is just an old
development snapshot, was never intended to be released, is probably a
"bit" buggy at best and most importantly not supported in any way from
the GCC folks.

I hear, RH 8.0 is avialable and maybe it's a good time to upgrade your
distribution and compiler NOW.

Btw, the following works for me using GCC 3.2:

char a[15000000];

int main ()
  a[1] = 'a';
  a[2] = 'b';
