8 I also waiting for gcc-4 enabled qemu for long time...
9 The problem that "emerge --emptytree world" will not work when
10 packages are compiled in different gcc versions.
11 The kvm-qemu is not relevant if you don't have the hardware.
13 One solution I saw is to compile gcc-3 as part of the qemu build
14 process, and make the qemu use this gcc-3 instance. This way you can
15 have qemu up and running while the system is configured for gcc-4.
17 It is very disappointing that upstream does not allow gcc-4
18 configuration so long after gcc-4 release.
