ACK, and it had been gnat again :(

it's win32gcc
We have too many gcc packages, I feel. Playing some with them, I've found
the following ones:
altgcc (dunno what it is)
win32 gcc
and the "official" one.
I feel that we could be more consistent, if the gcc package would contain
all of them, or at most there have been two gcc's: one for pure C,
and the other for C++,objc,ada,fortran and whatever else, and it would be
capable of outputting all binary formats ued: elf, aout, win32 coff, (and
possibly elks?).
Or another approach would be that there is a "base" gcc package which knows
about the possibility of all above, and there are different packages who
have only the language or output-format specific part. With this approach it
would be easy to insert cross-compiler support, which we sonn will need
badly, as ports to other architectures evolve.
