The compiler shipped wit the updates to RH7 works very nicely, thank
you.  There are a few more warnings, mostly caused by more strict
enforcement of the ANSI C standards.  They ship a special kernel
compiler, and the kernel SRPMs automatically use that compiler.  You
shouldn't need kgcc for anything other than the kernel, although there
may be a few really old broken programs that don't work properly.
BTW, there are mailman RPMs in the RedHat PowerTools collection.  I've
been using them, and they seem to work really well.  (plus, they make
upgrades much nicer)
