Yes, i've been wondering what the best way to deal with this is.
Part of the problem, of course, is that the path above changes
depending on which version of NetBSD the toolchain was compiled
on, and which version of gcc you're using.

What I'll probably do is distribute base.tar.gz with /usr/libexec/cpp
pointing to /usr/local/libexec/cpp, and then make the latter a
symlink to the `real' cpp, and distribute that in toolchain.tar.gz.
