2.96 is about the earliest you will get without breaking your system = Download compat-gcc here - http://fr.rpmfind.net//linux/RPM/redhat/9/i386/compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.118.i386.html
Compile your source with gcc-2.96 source.c

The only place you'll find Gcc 2.95 will be a RedHat SRPM for 7.x. To install it and not break your RH 9 box you'll need to alter the spec file to target the installation to somplace else, like /usr/local or /opt. Then it just a matter of rebuilding the package and installing it with rpm.

Given that 2.95 was a hybrid and never released in the general sense, it makes more sense to me for you to modify your application to make it compatible with the current (3.x) release of Gcc.
