Which _compiler_ and version did you use??

Did you notice in Kernel Traffic #77 For 24 Jul ['gcc-2.91.66' Recommended For
Kernel Compilation]
http://kt.linuxcare.com/kernel-traffic/kt20000724_77.epl#9

in which Zack Brown writes:
[In the course of discussion, Linus Torvalds mentioned that he used
'gcc-2.91.66', and that 'gcc-2.7.2' was "compiler non-grata".
Richard Gooch replied, "Aha! Now I know what compiler you're using. Is there
general agreement in the cabal that gcc-2.91.66 is Good[tm]?" Alan Cox and Randy
Dunlap confirmed this, and the thread ended.]

Is the one you use??

Thanks in advance.
