 Hmm, it seems the maintainer of the Pre-R5 archive is updating his
 site. I don't know how long it will take for the site to get back.
 I do know that a Redhat 4 will cause problems. It did with my board and
 with other folks' boards too. If you can find a more recent Redhat for
 PPC, it might be better. But I cannot say for sure.

 A more recent egcs can only be better ! Honestly, I don't know if it
 will cause troubles, but I think it's OK. The gcc on my MVME board is
 egcs and gcc version 2.9.1.
