I use gcc-4.5 as my system gcc, but mostly use 4.6 when building things outside of portage. I still run into compilation errors with C++ which go away if I compile said code with 4.5. GCC’s C++ abi is only *mostly* forwards compatible, not *entirely*. -JimC -- James Cloos <cloos@×××××××.com> OpenPGP: 1024D/ED7DAEA6
