Yes I don't disagree with you there Brian.  I myself much prefer RPMS
and only resort to tarballs when necessary.  I think RPMS are great for
installing and keeping systems running smoothly.

I don't need however, some pompous person telling me that for "_serious_
software building" that SRPMS are a magic bullet and tars are "highly
unreliable".  That is complete Bulls**t!

I'm a developer and system administrator by profession myself so I
understand computer systems and software quite well thank you very much

Anyway the original post was how to compile under a previous gcc release
which I answered instead of telling the poster to go load something else

Anyway enough noise now, let's all go back to being happy little Fedora
users :)

>     Enjoy!  Rejoice in the power of RPMS!
