mycroft, et. al. hate the GPL.  As a result we suffer from GNU C
integration problems.  They would rather patch 2.4.5 again than
cooperate with the FSF.

We missed out on 2.6.3 and libg++ 2.6.2.  As a result I erased the
bogus libg++ from my NetBSD source tree and installed the 2.6.2 one.
All the NetBSD core software never missed it and I could build things
like RARS without any errors.

OS politics, *sigh*
