Some weeks ago I also try to compile the kernel (32bits) with gcc-3.1 
(cvs) and eventhought it boots fine there was a problem
with network connections (as well telnet which uses inetd as well as ssh
which using its own sshd; this confirm the problem of compilation in 
network interface). Is this problem solved now?
If not I will ask to Bruno to test its last lkcd code (kdb not yet 
working) to continue to investigate this problem.
