ANSI-C++ compliance?

There's an interesting article in the Sept. 1, 1998 issue of EDN 
magazine ("Linux revisited") regarding why commercial vendors don't port 
more software to Linux (actually, this article is readers' replies to a 
previous article).

One of the comments is that "GCC isn't ANSI-C++-compliant," so "to port 
would require a large amount of development time...".

Is this true?  I've always thought of gcc as being on the bleeding edge.  
Are there really compliance problems that affect portability that 
severely?
