While the gcc used as part of the EMX toolchain is 2.8.1, there are
ports of gcc 3.3.5 and 4.4.x using a somewhat compatible runtime (known
as klibc).  I have an unreleased 2.6 binary package which I'm holding
up pending 2.6.5.

OpenWatcom is also supported on OS/2, though I don't know whether the
C++ support is advanced enough...  while I like this compiler, the
runtime support (or lack thereof) for Posixish features makes platform
support a lot of work.
