Yes that would be great if it used gcc.

Not a problem.  I was glad to make use of it.  I would have done this myself, 
if I had the resources for it.  One of the packages I wanted was gcc34, but 
that doesn't seem to be built.  I'm trying to build it, but it can't seem to 
find g++, even though its there in the PATH in /usr/local/bin !
