:Cool.  Can I rip out freebsd-4.8 from our dfports override stuff?  Since GCC

    I don't think we want to rip up our dfports stuff until we actually
    have something to replace it with.

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean about gcc 3.x not having any
    freebsd compatibility.  Binaries compiled with gcc 3.x work just fine
    on a FreeBSD-4.x box.  Maybe you are thinking of the FreeBSD-5 signal
    changes that broke FreeBSD 5's backwards compatibility with FreeBSD-4
    (and now also new system calls that are made unconditionally in FreeBSD-5
    which also break compatibility with FreeBSD-4).
