reassign 111909 gcc-2.96 thanks there is a similiar problem on sparc, where the gcc-3.0 driver is diverted to the gcc-3.0-sparc64 version, which is only built for the "normal" gcc-3.0. Not sure, how this affects g77 and g++ on sparc as well. For sparc64, we could conflict gobjc-3.0 and gcc-3.0-sparc64. However on ia64 there is no such diversion (?). Is gobjc-2.96 installed?
