There are some software pieces out there which want to link with gcc 
runtime stuff (emacs and pcc are examples). But we have the interesting 
files in /usr/lib/gcc<version>/.

What I really don't want to do is to maintain patches which will break 
with every compiler upgrade:

#if defined(__GNUC__) && __GNUC__ == 3 && __GNUC_MINOR__ == 4
#define GCC_LIB -L/usr/lib/gcc34
#elif defined(__GNUC__) && __GNUC__ == 4 && __GNUC_MINOR__ == 1
#define GCC_LIB -L/usr/lib/gcc41
Anyone has good ideas how to do it in better way?
Introduce a varsym which uses CCVER (/usr/lib/gcc/ -> /usr/lib/$(CCVER))?
