The GCC release that ccomes with RH6.2 was included with RH7.0, under a
different filename, /usr/bin/kgcc, which stands for kernel gcc, as
2.2.17 had problems compiling with the newer gcc "2.96".

You _can_ do LFS from RH7, it's just a matter of doing a search on the
mailing list archives and using the right packages/patches.
(this also goes for any newer glibc 2.2+, Debian, Slackware, RH and soon
LFS will all be like this)
