I can try it with unproven, as well--you probably caught my pkgsrc-to-brain
lag, as I haven't been fiddling with the userland threading libraries in
several months.  All this is speculation at this point; I'm working on the
bootstrapping tools first.

: lang/gcc is 2.95.2.

What I meant was that I need to get off my butt and transform lang/gcc to
use a direct source snapshot of src/gnu/dist/toolchain, as I've been
promising.  That method is a little easier to work with than all those
patch-* files (especially for multiple platforms).
