Is it okay to compile 2.2.1 with gcc 2.96?

I've copied over the 2.2.1 tree from RH7.2 box to a RH7.3 box
and run gmake install. For some reason it decided to recompile everything.

My question is this. Is gcc 2.96:

Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/specs
gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-112)

considered to be a stable compiler for the purpose of compiling 2.2.1?
