Does SWISH-E seem to execute alright?  That may be as good as it gets on
Red Hat 7.2.

Ewh, you're probably lucky if anything compiles.  Their GCC 2.96
packages never really worked well.  Red Hat finally released a RH 7.2
errata package named "gcc3" in Feb 2002 which provides a more stable GCC
3.0.4 compiler.  Red Hat's gcc3 errata package will co-exist with the
default GCC 2.96 compiler.


If your web host is willing to install (or already has) the gcc3 package
for RH 7.2 from RHN then SWISH-E can be configured to use it like this:
  ./configure CC=gcc3


It may or may not help.  I'm not entirely sure.  If SWISH-E builds and
works under GCC 2.96 with the -O2 flag removed then you may not want to
bother.
