Just to clarify the MacOS X platform a bit.
MacOS X 10.1, released around September 2001, uses gcc 2.95.2.
MacOS X 10.2, released around September 2002, uses gcc 3.1, and gcc
2.95.2 is easily available to the developers.
MacOS X 10.3, which will be released some time this calendar year, uses
gcc 3.3, with gcc 3.1 easily available to developers. gcc 2.95.2 is
also available as an optional install; developers targetting older
versions of MacOS X will be using it, but we expect few to use it for
current and future development.
We often ship multiple versions of the compiler because our customers
may have legacy code that does not compile under the newer compiler
versions (particularly with large C++ code bases). But for the most
part, we're concentrating all of our development and support efforts to
gcc 3.3, and to a lesser extent, gcc 3.1.
And, of course, everything we do is in stabs.
