I'm quite sure the answer is ``Yes''.

However, please note that questions like these are beyond the scope of
the GCC mailing lists: We ship GCC as source code only and our version
numbers are of the style X.Y or X.Y.Z (possibly followed by a letter).

The versions you are using (-12 and -24) apparently have been modified
and built by Red Hat, so you'll have to ask them, not us.
