The problem is that FC6 turns on (by default) a linker option that 
creates binaries that FC5 (and earlier) can't run.  There is a way to 
override it (don't recall what offhand, but I think the FC6 release 
notes talk about it), but I wouldn't be optimistic about your chances of 
finding all the places to patch to generate a whole toolchain with the 
right link option.  We (where I work) deal with this by simply doing the 
toolchain builds on FC5, until we manage to upgrade all the machines to FC7.
