GCC2 indeed sucks. The reason we use GCC2 is for compatibility with BeOS binaries. Keep in mind that Haiku also has a well developed and stable gcc4 build.

The reason for using Mesa 7.8.2 on gcc2 builds is that anything newer then 7.8.2 has the new glsl C++ code which is c99. c99 C++ code does NOT compile in gcc2 without a HUGE number of changes.
