Boost should work well with GCC 2.95.2 right out of the box, and won't depend
at all on the version of the Linux kernel (except, perhaps, for _really_ old

If you find that you need parts of Boost libraries that require some of the
features GCC 2.95.2 is missing (e.g., wide character streams, stringstream,
numeric_limits<>), then you can install STLPort to get them. Most users,
however, don't need this.
