About the only thing I'm really concerned with is egcs. As much as I hate
to do it, I think we're going to have to replace 1.1b with a snapshot on
the Alpha due to MANY optimiser bug fixes and some other big problems in
1.1b (that version should've never been dubbed a release IMO).
Once egcs is "fixed", we will be able to compile our big packages and move
on with the release (provided that dpkg actually compiles under the egcs
snapshot...right now, the dpkg package is segfaulting...also only happened
once moving to egcs 1.1 releases).
