What about incorporating a more up-to-date gcc than gcc-2.4.5 into the source
tree? If there are any diffs between the stock gcc and the one we need for
NetBSD, why not reporting them back to the gcc maintainers and have them create
some defines for NetBSD in gcc? I don't think that it will be a great problem
to have the gnu-folks incorporating our changes. This would make it easier to
port gcc to NetBSD in future releases.

See above.

Any comments?
