Well I now have a 2.0RC5 to test on and the "GCC_REQD=3D3.0" doesn't cause =
build of gcc3. (Same on gentoo with their gcc 3.3.4)

Does the "GCC_REQD=3D3.0" cause a build of g++ on machines that use a non g=
compiler? If it doesn't this patch should be committed. (From what I've=20
tested with setting PKGSRC_COMPILER?=3D!gcc (I used ccc) it doesn't (i.e. i=
got as far as 'work/celestia-1.3.2/./configure' saying the C compiler can't=
produce executeables))
