(XFree uses Imake, always has, and though I've actually written some
stuff on how to convert all of X over to autoconf, I don't expect it
to ever happen... thus, the only one "finding" the link is the human
who frobs with the config files.)
Seriously, I think installing egcs as egcs (or egcc, whatever) makes
sense, and if you have a Makefile that uses naked 'cc', well, *it's
wrong*, but you've got a Makefile, so you can *fix* it. It's a few
seconds with an editor...
