just fine on RedHat 8 with gcc 3.2. I just re-tested them to make sure.
However, I don't distribute RPMs for RedHat 8 soley, because I distribute
ones that work on RedHat 7 & 8.
If you still want to try and compile VIM on your redhat 8 box and are
convinced it has something to do with GCC 3.2, try using /usr/bin/gcc296
as your $CC replacement in the proper makefiles and friends. A usually
easier _quick fix_ is it `link -s /usr/bin/gcc296 /bin/gcc`, then when you
are done building, remove the link /bin/gcc - This works, because most
people have /bin in their $PATH before /usr/bin.
