file access is in the glibc library. If binary incompatibility is there,
you can expect this and all sort of other problems.

Think of rh8 as RedHat 8.0. The .0 is very important, in my opinion.
Think of the respin of redhat 7.0. Think of all the problems with 6.0.
Get the point?
Now, think of what you'll gain with 3.2 versus the old gcc, and try to
answer some questions.
Do you get faster programs? By how much?
Do you get smaller programs?
Do you loose compatibility?
Why do you have to disable some optimizations for the code to work or to
and... at the end... Is this all worth it?
