Even if so, I would be happy if our guru takes into consideration adding the
following note, or something
like that, to a corner of his new book, presumably recommending use of gcc-2.95.2
or later.
I don't need two different compilers on my LFS2.4, too.

      "If your PC uses i810 and you need X401, it would be better to choose
egcs-2.91-66 from
the beginning because gcc-2.95.2 is able to compile X401 all but an X server
driver module for i810.
(This failure does not quit the compilation, so you are likely to overlook it
until the compilation has finished.)
This is due to a bug which prevents the compiler from parsing the kernel header
file agpgart.h, and thus
the driver module fails to be compiled."

In case the latest gcc is free from this bug, please forget this comment.
