What options did you pass to configure when building egcs? I'm just
curious so we have a similar installation. Plus, I've never needed a
second compiler on the same machine, so I'm wondering how everything will
work out :)

Yeah, that's what I thought. I plan on just playing with it mostly and
compiling straight C stuff (normal packages) to see if the optimisation is
improved and some other things. I also want to test the Fortran support
more (I plan on going for the gusto and trying to compile octave with it).
