Where does egcs lack in comparison to gcc? Egcs frequently pulls in all 
the new gcc development and was based off gcc, so I would be surprised 
to find it to be worse than gcc. Most tests haven't ranked significatly
better than gcc, except in C++ development, but it would be nice to 
standardize on egcs than mixing the two.

So if libc wouldn't run without patches on the Hurd, but would on Linux,
you would feel the same actions were justified? The copyright on EGCS
is completely owned by the FSF. The only reason for the problem is 
petty personality differences like those that produced Emacs and Xemacs.
