18 Bootstrapping makes distcc impossible, and you can't bootstrap these days
19 without building C and C++. Even if you're not bootstrapping, the back and
20 middle ends are shared. You have to build them to build the front-ends. Maybe
21 you could cut out a couple of the target libraries, so you're really not gaining
22 much.
24 If the build times really get to you then you could try something like:
26 GCC_MAKE_TARGET="all" EXTRA_ECONF="--disable-bootstrap" \
27 emerge -av1 sys-devel/gcc:4.8
29 distcc should work for most of the build (the target libs must be built with
30 the just-built compiler so that can't be distributed).
32 Anyways, assuming we can't split out fortran, would you be for or against
33 enabling it by default? I'm good either way.
