CVS is a mess right now, they are switching to a pretty different build
process. Use 4.1.

As far as upgrading, you can upgrade gcc from 3.2.x to 3.2.3 (no major
versions) but I wouldn't mess with glibc. This is the easy answer... any
upgrade is possible, but a lot of headache. Everything is linked against
glibc, upgrading that can (and depending on the version, will) break
