You can get the sub-version by 'gcc -v' or 'gcc --version'.

I think I remind some above errors I have ever had but not clear that was
caused by ALSA installation or else.
I have a few experiences that some errors caused during OSS installation.
What I did was uninstall and reboot linux then install (by ./oss-install) it
again. That fixed all of the problems in my case.
(I hate to reboot rare case in Unix. Very often in MessWindowz:-( )

Now, are you sure above long errors were caused by OSS installation?

I can't give any more help, that's all what I can do.
I hope lir00-49a will fix it for you.
