I think there is even some explicit warning somewhere that
gcc-2.95-compiled kernels are bad for your health or something. If you
ask Linus (or read Documentation/Changes), you are told to use
gcc-, no kidding.

2.3.17 is now running, although I had to recompile it once; make
oldconfig had eaten my CONFIG_ADBMOUSE. Someone is playing games with
the config options. In make menuconfig, the "APPLE DESKTOP MOUSE" is
marked as "NEW". Mine doesn't look very new anymore :-)
