[puts head over parapet of the trench]
I was one of the (l)users nagging for GCC 4.x to be included, back
when the base was 3.
At the time, the motivation was clear: newer ordinary user-space code
(X) was starting to depend on gcc 4 series to be built correctly,
packages which I depended on outside of X were unhappy with a 3 series
compiler, linkage between 3 and 4 series libraries was a PITA.
I very much appreciate the work people did to bring GCC 4 into the
But, minor number upgrade, combined with licence-wars, over
optimizations for one chip arch? I'm really not sure thats a driver
for me. Sure, I want NetBSD to be the bitchin' best it can be, but
with the compiler available in the pkgsrc tree, I'm really not sure
this one has a 'do it now' flag on it..
So if there is a post 5.0 flavour on this, I am probably much happier:
after all, a bunch of OTHER work (like PR closing) probably needs
doing to get 5 happening anyway.
