does GCC 2.7.0 have any fatal bugs that would require a upgrage to 2.7.1
or are the bugs not significant enough that I need to go to patch level 1?

2.7.1 isn't out yet, so you can't upgrade to it.  It will contain quite a
few C++ fixes; I don't know of any major fixes that affect C users, though
I suspect that there are a couple (and HJ has probably already applied
these to the version that he puts out).  Generally, 2.7.0 is the best x.y.0
release FSF has put out in years (but one could argue that this is not
saying much).

When it is out, I'd strongly encourage C++ users to upgrade; otherwise
I guess it's up to you.

1. RH6.0 - i386-glibc20-linux-gcc or i386-redhat-linux-gcc

I notice that the RH6.0 has two gcc compilers in

  /usr/bin/i386-glibc20-linux-gcc
  /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc

and the default one is /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc. Anyone
know what is different between them? Because I have found some
programs fail to be compiled using the redhat one but successful
if using /usr/bin/i386-glibc20-linux-gcc.
