To compile gcc-2.95.2 on a glibc-2.2 based machine you need to apply a patch to
GCC (Redhat7 and the upcoming LFS-3.0 are glibc-2.2 based). A better
thing is using gcc-2.95.2.1 instead of gcc-2.95.2. The 2.95.2.1 version
of gcc has that patch already applied and solves a few other minor
problems.

You can get it from gcc.gnu.org or from the lfs ftp server:
ftp://packages.linuxfromscratch.org/pub/new-in-cvs/gcc-2.95.2.1.tar.bz2
