Problems using crosstool-0.42 with Arm

That was definitely helpful. After installing the compat-gcc-32 RPM, I
set CC=gcc32 and was able to build a 2.95 Arm compiler.

Thanks much!

Compiling such an ancient gcc (2.95) with a very new gcc (4.1.1) is
probably not going to work.  Those archaic gccs were much more
permissive about accepting invalid code, and the current versions won't
let you get away with it.  So, you'll probably need to use an
intermediate version that is somewhere in between.  Fedora has such a
compiler already packaged for you (e.g. compat-gcc-32) so just install
that and set your environment appropriately to use it instead of 4.1.1.
