It could be a corruption or bug in NetBSD. I've come to expect these
things with NetBSD.
This is in particular a sudden inability to build NetBSD-current from source.
Until I see information about an update of base gcc, I don't plan to try
any more using base gcc. I could try to build gcc-aux or gcc48 from pkgsrc
and use that, if build is successful. I think I could set HOST_CC and
HOST_CXX to tell the build to use that in place of base gcc.
I could also try to cross-build from FreeBSD using gcc-aux from ports
or from NetBSD 6.1_STABLE if that boots. Base gcc in FreeBSD through 9.x
is 4.2.1 because that is the last release before gcc went to GPLv3.
So there are things I can try before putting it on the back shelf.
