Trust me. Unless the author of the trojan hack has already
infected Digital UNIX cc, HPUX cc, AIX cc, there is not trojan
carried through purely in the binary. (Oh, and the digital unic CC
was also bootstrapped with the VMS CC)
Did you think I would give teh dispensation to gcc so easily?
Any such trojan, in gcc, has to be present in the source code. And
people who are paranoid enough can do a security audit with out being
blind sided by a binary only trojan.
Nature gave man two ends--one to sit on and one to think with. Ever
since then man's success or failure has been dependent on the one he
used most. George R. Kirkpatrick
