How to keep gcc and such up to date?
Unstable has still the -- on powerpc -- rather buggy gcc-2.95.2
Before, I used Franz's bleeding edge rpms from
(De-?!)alien-ising works, but with the current tar (1.13) that
overwrites symlinks, this makes a mess of the /usr/man, /usr/info,
/usr/doc/*, it breaks dependencies like g++, libstdc++2.10-dev.
Also, I don't dare upgrading libc6 this way.
How do the rest of you handle this, or where do you update your gcc,
gdb and other important stuff from?
