it being late and me with nothing to do (except things i'm avoiding or
otherwise putting off) i figured now would be a good time to build the
new release of the ra toolset.  big mistake.  error messages worse
than i've ever seen.  indeed, error messages i've never seen.

i've got

   % c++ -v 
    /usr/bin/cc -v
   gcc version
   % as -v
   GNU assembler version 1.92.3, NetBSD $Revision: 1.3 $
   % uname -a
   NetBSD noc 1.3.3 NetBSD 1.3.3 (LINGAM) #1: Tue Apr 13 12:33:49 EDT 1999     andrew@noc:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/LINGAM i386

i haven't included any of the error messages (that i don't truly
understand) but they all seem rather c++ related (do you really want
some?).  and since my c++ is a little rusty, i'm not actually gonna
dig out the problems (in the source) and "fix" then.  not now,
anyway. i don't even know if it's worth my while.

so my question this c++/gcrc vesion just plain *lacking* in
support for templates?  or is something else going dramatically wrong?
