The Wikipedia entry hints at this, but isn't clear as to what the
"compatibility issues" may be:

    | This dedication to compatibility also has its drawbacks though,
    | requiring Haiku to use version 2.95 of the compiler GCC, which as
    | of 2008, is essentially over 7 years old[3]. Switching to using
    | the newer GCC version 4 causes compatibility issues with BeOS
    | software. Therefore Haiku supports being built as a hybrid
    | GCC4/GCC2 environment[4]. This allows the use of both GGC version
    | 2 and version 4 binaries at the same time.
