  +    <P> GCC parses your system header files and produces a modified subset which
       it uses for compiling.  This behaviour ties GCC tightly to the version
       of your operating system.  So, for example, if you were running IRIX 5.3
       when you built GCC and then upgrade to IRIX 6.2 later, you will have to
       rebuild GCC.  Similarly for Solaris 2.4, 2.5, or 2.5.1 when you upgrade
       to 2.6.  Sometimes you can type "gcc -v" and it will tell you the version
       of the operating system it was built against.

  +   This is almost always due to your <A HREF="../mod/core.html#allowoverride">
  +   AllowOverride</A> directive being set incorrectly for the directory in
