: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).
