Someone said (when talking about computers) that a fear of hassle is wisdom. I
use a Linux from Scratch system, and therefore compile everything from the
sources myself. I like bleeding edge, once compiled by system with CVS
versions of Glibc and GCC (will not do it again though...). I really want GCC
4 because I would like to play with Ada and Rockbox. Ada support in
gcc 3.4 is from the pit. Perhaps I'll try gcc 4.3 and CVS binutils next.

And Nils: Yes, I also want the patch.
