egcs-1.1 binary incompatibility
At the egcs web site (http://egcs.cygnus.com), I ran across this
egcs-1.1 compiled C++ code is not binary compatible with egcs-1.0.x
or gcc-2.8.x due to changes necessary to support thread safe
We need to find out *exactly* what this means before we start using it
to build packages. Do we need to recompile shared libraries to work
with new programs, or vice-versa? How about static libraries?
Will we have to introduce new .so numbers for libraries so we can
support a mixture of packages compiled with new and old compilers?
