I'm sorry that my terseness offends your sensibilities.  All
the information that I had available was in the post, i.e.,
gcc failed to build.

it's reproducable.  it's not caused by OOM, but obviously by
a build-level error, because certain objects that the source
code thinks should be available, aren't.  Perhaps looking at
the detail I provided a bit closer might reveal that fact, in
an obvious sort of manner (i.e., an ld error)

Since I'm neither a maintainer, nor a GCC developer, but simply
a gentoo-sparc user, my job is to report the bugs that I see.

If you are a developer or maintainer, one might questions the
validity in your stance of attacking users for not providing
the information that -you- feel is needed, instead of simply
asking for additional detail.

It's no wonder the list is dry and gentoo is losing it's path.
