The problem is not with the 2.2.12 kernel, but with the 2.3.16 branch in
his "devel" archive.  The "stable" branch is working like a champ for me.
I'm sorry if I didn't make that very clear in my message (I had just
spent three minutes writing down all those addresses).  :)

If it matters, I'm using GCC from the Debian Potato branch (which I have
installed).  I believe it's just EGCS 1.1.2 release; but it's building 
2.2.12 great, 2.3.16 just isn't building.  I guess it's possible there's
a 2.3 kernel problem with the compiler, although I don't see any problems
in the builds.

Has anyone built kernels (either 2.2 or 2.3) with GCC 2.95?  I'd build a new
compiler (even just to try) if I could build the newest one.  :P
