To add to what Dave already said, for building ODB-based applications
officially we only support g++ 4.2 and up. By officially I mean we make
sure every test in the ODB test suite compiles and runs fine with this
version, for every release.

You may be able to get away with g++ 3.4 seeing that we managed to
support VC++ 8. But I doubt 3.2 will work, it is just too old.

Also, as Dave mentioned, the ODB compiler has even stricter g++ 
requirements (4.5 and up). But you could always generate the code
on a newer box and then copy it over and compile on EL3. Not ideal
but workable.
