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- instead of gcc-2.95.2. The version
of gcc has that patch already applied and solves a few other minor

You can get it from gcc.gnu.org or from the lfs ftp server:
