It was two weeks ago before I left on my vacation, and I just
re-checked it.  It's busted.

It's specifically the build---apparently this is one slight bug that
egcs-1.0.3 gets us that 1.0.2 did not have.  It shows up on the i386
as well.

As far as the person who built it fixing it, I _am_ the person who
built it, and I am working on rebuilding, using Chris' snapshot egcs.
We'll see if that makes a difference.

If it doesn't, though, we need a fallback.

Probably any of the ones from Feb would be fine, but don't bother
right yet---I'm going to try and rebuild jade with the snapshot egcs,
to see if that works.

If that fails, then we need to wedge the older one back in so we can
continue to work productively---without jade, debiandoc and linuxdoc
all croak, which makes building some packages (afterstep and dpkg, off
hand) impossible.
