Indeed it is, but the RHEL5/OpenVZ kernels we're using are very
different from 2.6.18, even though they use that as their base version
number (branch point).  Judging by linux-2.6.18.tar.xz and
patch-238.19.1.el5.028stab092.2-combined.xz sizes in bytes, this kernel
is approx. 72% of 2.6.18 and 28% of mostly newer code.

That said, it is in fact meant to be built with RHEL5's version of gcc,
which is inbetween Owl 3.0's and Owl 4.0's planned one.
