glibc-2.1.92-14 is another name for the beta release of glibc-2.2.0

gcc-2.96-54 is another name for an unreleased alpha release of gcc-3.0

beta glibc...unreleased alpha release....see why RH7 isn't liked much?

btw "unreleased alpha" may be "unreleased beta" but the fact is that gnu.org 
has never intented for gcc-2.96 to be used by public: it was only to be used 
by gcc developers because it's pretty much unusable.
