Fortunately, you can always have old compilers at hand,
because software does not have to be bound to a distro.

[given your test access to Dapty]
you can e.g. run default g++ which happens to be 4.2.3
or choose instead /coda/chalmers.0l.se/1/V/r4P/g++ which is 4.1.2

(or run instead tcc, either the default which is 0.9.25 there or
/coda/chalmers.0l.se/1/v/7dC/tcc which is 0.9.26)

We did not build g++ 2.95 (even though we built gcc 2.95) but it would
be easy to do, not having any dependency on a third party's (like a
Linux distribution) deliberate choice of libraries or tools.

Given more legal certainty I'd be happy to host and maintain runnable
cfront for the public, but such thing as legal certainty hardly exists.
