[buug] Falling back to gcc 2.95

I'm building a server for work and in our collective wisdom, we decided to
build mysql from source.
On www.mysql.com we saw a warning about using gcc 2.96 as follows:
"We recommend that MySQL be compiled with gcc 2.95"
...due to stability issues.
I installed (forced) the following:
and then typed:
# gcc -v
...and got back...
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (release)
But when I begin configuring mysql, I slam against the following wall:
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem:
C compiler cannot create executables.
This is one of those places in life when actually knowing what you're
doing really would help :-)
Can anyone enlighten me?
Thanks for sticking with me this far, reading this wannabe stuff.
