Re: status update - gcc 4.5 - some what working

Building the system on Mac OS X gives me:

In file included from /dist/src/external/gpl3/gcc/dist/gcc/vec.c:29:
/dist/src/external/gpl3/gcc/dist/gcc/system.h:402:20: error: malloc.h: No such 
file or directory

When I manually comment '#include <malloc.h>' out in the 
external/gpl3/gcc/dist/gcc/system.h, the build continues, but I am not sure 
this is a proper solution.

Kind regards,
