Hi Martin,

Thanks for the information!

The problem was created by lang/gcc34 package, which overwrite at
least /usr/bin/gcc and /usr/bin/cpp.

Since those files were overwritten, removing /lang/gcc34 did not
recover them. I suspect it as a bug, that
1) /usr/gcc34 overwrites important compiling files which shipped as
'core components';
2) Removing /usr/gcc34 doesn't erase nor restore those overwritten files.
