Problems
--------
Some problems while compiling gcc-cris have been reported by RedHat 7.0 users.
If you are using RedHat 7.0 (gcc 2.96) you need to edit the installation script
and change the line:

su -c "sh -c \"while true ; do echo ; done\" | ./install-cris-tools"

to

su -c "sh -c \"while true ; do echo ; done\" | env CC=kgcc ./install-cris-tools"
