I also have been lurking, and frankly the EGCS compiler is a fantastic
improvement. There is a LONG LONG way to go before the compiler will
be ready for us (but considering the progress that they have been making,
It's quite nice to see some progress on gcc, in fact for a while I
wondered if 2.7.x was the last release of gcc. Guess not ;-)
We should do better to support the effort, and optionally offer the EGCS
compiler as a port. My guess is that it won't be ready to be the 3.0-RELEASE
The response(s) I got to my "I'm a newbie, anyone know about this problem"
was basically met with "well no FreeBSD developers have contacted us, and
if they did we'd accept/commit/whatever some changes..".
