I did this command sequence in single user (s/cf -/cBpf - ./) and have rebooted
into a gcc 3.3.1 world.
I think I still need to force an update of my MBR, and of course remake xsrc,
and the pkgsrc world I live in (gulp)
Presumably, the USE_TOOLS_TOOLCHAIN=no line in mk.conf is now redundant, and I
do expect to be doing ./build -E again as the ongoing remake world path.
