only those which need "special care" - most packages don't need
anything special to build with gcc3. the above is indeed a side-effect
of buildlink2.

gcc3 is a large beast, and including adds a
considerable amount of time to the buildlink target for no reason in
most packages, which is why I chose to not do that automatically.

and for those who are about to say "we'll need to change all this
when gcc3 is in base NetBSD"... no, only small changes will be
required, and this stuff will still be required for non-NetBSD
systems. :-)
