I collected a list one time. It only had two items:
- If you use STL, everything will break.

- If you link with egcs 1.1, and some objects are gcc 2.95-compiled,
  your libgcc will miss some functions.

If you found a problem that is not on this list, I'd like to know.
Officially, there is no claim of any compatibility whatsoever.
