Yes they are (well, 5.2 is at least).  We're building under RH 5.x and
Debian 2.x pretty regularly.

IIRC, you upgraded to RH 6.0.  Did you rebuild egcs after the upgrade?
Bryce mentioned that he had to do this after his upgrade.

In previous mail, you wrote:

You have to use gcj, not gcc.  Gcj is the program that knows about the
--main option.

I hope this helps.
