There are two reasons for installing gcc-&gcc2-version;. The first is that the kernel
developers have certified gcc-&gcc2-version; as the preferred compiler for compiling the
kernel. The other (and more compelling reason) is that some
commercial closed-source packages (such as Netscape Navigator, Yahoo Pager)
and precompiled packages (such as Mozilla)
are linked against gcc-&gcc2-version libs.
