Subject Re: [general] gcc version 4.x as our

Hi Geir,

That doesn't really affect that - LSB is based on POSIX, and they are pretty 
much just a agreed version of glibc/libstdc++/etc that all Linux vendor would 
pledge to implement - of course that doesn't mean you should use library calls 
there is, which compromise the portability to other Unices, just like how you 
compile to certain version of RH/Suse/etc, but you also compile on other Unixces
