Congratulations on succeeding to raise my blood pressure.

The problems we have in slink currently are NOT caused by EGCS. They
resulted from libc6 being compiled with the maintainers local
/usr/local/bin/cc rather than /usr/bin/gcc. This introduced symbols in libc6
that shouldn't have been there. The problem cascaded into libraries compiled
on systems that had this broken libc installed. Two of these were
libstdc++2.8 and libstdc++2.9.

It's not a fault of mine or of the other EGCS maintainers that the libc6
maintainer choose to repair this problem in a way that broke just about
every system that tracked "frozen".

Tevens ben ik van mening dat Nederland overdekt dient te worden.
