That's probably not a good idea. The C++ ABI changed between GCC 2 and
GCC 3. The ABI is the binary interface to compiled code like shared
objects. What this means is that there are sometimes problems mixing
code compiled with GCC 2 and GCC 3.
This is my understanding of the situation at least . . .
