I would really love to have a ccc use flag, it would let us keep track of which packages work with ccc, apply any patches that are required, etc, etc. but after a brief discussion with other developers, we've decided to wait until the new cc-config scripts have been implemented, which will let users change `compiler profile`, i'm not sure how its going to work yet, but it sounds cool. -- ------------------------------------- taviso@××××××××××××.org | finger me for my gpg key. ------------------------------------------------------- -- gentoo-alpha@g.o mailing list
