Re: glibmm build issues with gcc 4.8

you seem to have flawed perceptions about the state of pkgsrc GCC, which
until recently was barely functional for netbsd. the platforms that
can't build pkgsrc GCC aren't esoteric, they include, e.g. netbsd/arm.

I've been fighting to make this work for forever and everyone just seems
to think this works, how do you think it would magically happen? nobody
in netbsd seems to care about upstreaming GCC work and leaving it up to
anyone who wants functional packages.

the last time someone has made a netbsd-related change to GCC was around
a decade ago. there are entire targets not upstreamed. I'd like to take
a break from working on pkgsrc or netbsd and I'm seeing tech-pkg
conspiring to remove support for half of my hardware and not even
realizing it as I'm repeatedly stating it
