Those instructions refer only to using it in building packages until it's
integrated into pkgsrc/mk/compiler/gcc.mk. You may use this gcc.mk:
and select it by defining:
in you mk.conf file.
Outside of pkgsrc, it's sufficient to define you PATH so that /usr/pkg/gcc34
is searched before /usr/bin.
I'm sorry about any confusion my instructions may have caused.
