	*Broken* on many platforms?  It is not broken.  It is not enabled
on most because most have not had their scheduling information
un-lobotomized to *utilize* the Haifa scheduler.  The i386 port of
GCC/EGCS does not have any scheduling information and the Haifa scheduler
does not provide any benefit and may actually be a slight loss.

	The Haifa scheduler only is enabled by default on the HP and Alpha
ports in egcs-1.0.x.

	I am not sure how NetBSD is integrating EGCS, but EGCS is *meant*
to be built using "make bootstrap" not simply "make".
