Hmm.  I just compiled Octave 2.0.16 on a Debian system (unstable
branch) using gcc 2.95.2 without any problems, so I don't think it
should be required that you use `the compat compiler', whatever that

By default, does Red Hat 7.0 use some snapshot of gcc that is newer
than 2.95.2?  If so, why?

Would you like to submit patches to fix what you can?
