What is the standard way to start using pkgsrc on Tru64 UNIX (OSF1) with gcc?
Almost all versions of gcc are built (bootstrapped) under Tru64. And
pkgsrc/bootstrap/bootstrap script with --compiler gcc and right
CC/CXX/CPP envs succeeds. But when trying to install anything the
circular dependancy appears. pkgsrc doesn't want to use external gcc,
so it tries to build the one from lang/gcc but fails because it
depends on pkgtools/digest and so on.

When using Compaq CC everything is just find. The only problem is that
not much packages are compiled with it. I expect much more with gcc.
