Package: gcc
Version: 2:2.95.4-9
Severity: wishlist

I have changed the gcc symlink on my system to point to gcc-3.0 to help
work out the kinks with the compiler (I've found only a few) and to make
use of -march=3Dathlon.  The gcc symlink was reset to 2.95 on upgrade.
Please consider leaving it be if it points to a working compiler if not
putting it into /etc/alternatives outright.

This is of course a wishlist item and is not at all critical to anything
other than saving me a few keystrokes after upgrading.  =3D)

fine with me. for the record here the explanation:

gcc-x.y doesn't use alternatives to make sure that the preferred
system compiler is used when calling 'gcc'. switching the compiler
may break your system (will break for C++). In most gcc-x.y versions
ABI's are different.

If you want to test gcc-x.y for a particular package,

- use CC=gcc-x.y CXX=g++-x.y when configuring/compiling a package

- make ~<user>/bin/gcc a symlink to gcc-x.y and add it to your path

- if you know what you do, there is the option to divert the gcc/g++

closing the reports, adding to our karma.
