Does this apply to gcc-aux and gcc5-aux?  Does this mean that an already-built gcc-aux and gcc5-aux on NetBSD-current i386 will no longer work, or gcc-aux on NetBSD-current amd64 that was built in May 2015 at the time of NetBSD 7.99.15?

T tried to build gcc5-aux on amd64 last night, figuring I could keep the old gcc-aux from May 2015, but building gcc5-aux stopped in the middle, just hanging in the middle and requiring Ctrl-C to stop, but no reference to PCH.

Should I run "cvs up -dP" on the pkgsrc directory and try gcc5-aux again?  I am now building print/hplip on that computer.

I have never run pkgsrc on anything other than NetBSD.
