Hum?  The NetBSD tree has been set up to deal with an upgrade or downgrade
of egcs<->gcc2.7.2.  libg++ isn't an issue, really, as you may want that for
binary compatibility (it isn't built at all for egcs); the only real concern
you should have is deleting everything under /usr/include/g++ so that you
don't have old stray libg++ includes lying around.

It works great, as long as you don't use -m68040, -m68060, or -O3.  8-)

egcs 1.1 is supposed to address most to all of those bugs.
