They really do generate better performing code than gcc, and most
packages can be built successfully. I wouldnt reccomend switching from
gcc to ccc for shared libraries (like zlib, openssl, etc) at the moment,
but most other things should work just great, and give a noticable
performance improvement (apache, python, bash, perl, etc).

cxx is a little more brittle than ccc, some code will make it dump core,
but ccc seems stable and gives very verbose and easy to read error
messages if something goes wrong, or it finds some code it doesnt like
(much nicer than gcc errors :).

the major problem with shared libraries is that applications compiled
with gcc that link with them require -lots, this can be solved by adding
libots to each library...i have some plans to work around this.
