I decided to wipe my pkgsrc-derived software and start over fresh.
With a current pkgsrc (as of about 1800 CST 23 June 2004), I set
about re-bootstrapping pkgsrc on my SS20.  I used gcc 3.4.0 from to build the bootstrap kit and all went well.

Wanting to keep it all pkgsrc-derived, my next task is to build
lang/gcc3-c (after which I would uninstall the sunfreeware gcc and so

But building lang/gcc3-c fails a follows:

/usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c/work/gcc-3.3.3/gcc/xgcc -B/usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c/work/gcc-3.3.3/gcc/ -B/usr/pkg/gcc3/sparc-sun-solaris2/bin/ -B/usr/pkg/gcc3/sparc-sun-solaris2/lib/ -isystem /usr/pkg/gcc3/sparc-sun-solaris2/include -dumpspecs > tmp-specs /usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c/work/gcc-3.3.3/gcc/xgcc: fatal: open failed: No such file or directory
gmake[1]: *** [specs] Error 137
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c/work/gcc-3.3.3/gcc'
gmake: *** [all-gcc] Error 2
*** Error code 2

bmake: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c
*** Error code 1

bmake: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/lang/gcc3-c

So, it gets as far as building the bootstrap version of the compiler and
attempts to run it, but can't find

I did find it odd that libiconv (and libtool) was not among the
dependencies built subsequent to returning to lang/gcc3-c itself.  I seem
to recall that they were built as dependencies the last time I did this
about 6 months ago.
