Some time ago, there were instructions on how to move from a gcc
environment to egcs.  I remember following those instructions to the
letter, on my Mac68k system, and it worked just great!

Unfortunately, I no longer have the instructions and would like to move
my i38 system to egcs, too.  Can someone report the procedure?  Thanks!
