So what will now happen in e.g. the gcc3-patch loop?
[when gcc3 is set as default compiler on a system that
 has no GNU patch, any package will depend on gcc3
 which will depend on the GNU patch package, which will
 depend on gcc3]

Will it compile patch with whatever the other cc is,
will it warn that there is a build loop, will it just
break in patch because gcc3 isn't available?
