problems installing Octave 2.1.44 | RH 7.3

Greetings -

I'm currently running 2.1.39 without any problems on my RH Linux 7.3 box, which I keep as up-to-date as possible (e.g., making sure gcc is recent, perl is recent, python is recent etc...).

This morning, I tried to install the latest 'bleeding edge' tarball for 2.1.44, and the make failed right near the end with the following error messages:

In file included from Cell.h:36,
oct-obj.h: In function `void octave_value_list::operator delete (void
*, void *)':
oct-obj.h:69: no matching function for call to `operator delete (void
*&, void *)'
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/include/new:56: candidates are: void opera
tor delete (void *)
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/include/new:60: void opera
tor delete (void *,
const nothrow_t &)
make[2]: *** [Cell.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/users/egc/octave-2.1.44/src'
make[1]: *** [src] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/users/egc/octave-2.1.44'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I can't tell from the preceding if this is a gcc problem (I'm currently using gcc-2.96-113), or a weird interaction with something Octave is looking for, and something in the way RH has gcc libraries located.

Any insights appreciated - this is my first posting to this discussion, so apologies if this has already been addressed.
