I have not checked, but I think redhat ships two compilers, there is a
kgcc package in the 7.0 release for kernel compilation, not sure of the
version in it.
I would have to check if it's available. Workstation is upgraded by now and
running in it's previous state. (always tricky upgrading machines -
breaking stuff) The standard apache seems broken with some rsa crypto clash
Is the compiler hardcoded in the xfs source? (just checked out cvs tree)
I got the error that gcc-2.91-6 was not available ?!

That should definitely not happen. I did make mrproper before compiling.
make mrproper && make menuconfig && make dep && make bzImage etc..
Other concerns would be that the binaries of user space which are
dynamically linked agains glibc will have issues with the newer glibc
in Redhat 7.0. In theory they would not but.....
Not really found any (yet ;-)
More to come
