Known Causes of Trouble with GNU CC

   This section describes known problems that affect users of GNU CC.
Most of these are not GNU CC bugs per se--if they were, we would fix
them.  But the result for a user may be like the result of a bug.

   Some of these problems are due to bugs in other software, some are
missing features that are too much work to add, and some are places
where people's opinions differ as to what is best.

* Actual Bugs
Bugs we will fix later.
* Installation Problems
Problems that manifest when you install GNU CC.
* Cross-Compiler Problems
Common problems of cross compiling with GNU CC.
* Interoperation
Problems using GNU CC with other compilers, and with certain linkers, assemblers and debuggers.
* External Bugs
Problems compiling certain programs.
* Incompatibilities
GNU CC is incompatible with traditional C.
* Fixed Headers
GNU C uses corrected versions of system header files. This is necessary, but doesn't always work smoothly.
* Disappointments
Regrettable things we can't change, but not quite bugs.
* C++ Misunderstandings
Common misunderstandings with GNU C++.
* Protoize Caveats
Things to watch out for when using `protoize'.
* Non-bugs
Things we think are right, but some others disagree.
* Warnings and Errors
Which problems in your code get warnings, and which get errors.
