Yes, IMHO, it could have stayed in /[usr|opt]/gnome, and worked just as well
without breaking anything. Ah well. Get to live with it :-/

Ok, now that I've got GCC 3.3.1, that should be ok.

Possible, though it's very basic, just a list of library and include paths
added to various environment variables (CFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, LDFLAGS...)
Since I just hate putting everything in the same directory, I've got each lib
in its own little directory in /opt. Cleaner, but many ./configure scripts get
all confused when they don't find everything in /usr/lib.
Hmmm. now that I think about it, maybe some stuff didn't like having Sun GNOME
compiled against Xsun, and KDE trying to build with XFree86.
I guess I'll have to give it another try, investigate more, and post again :-)

I'm on Solaris x86, so I wouldn't expect the performance gap to be that big
between Forte/Sun binutils and GCC/GNU binutils.
Not sure what it could be, it'd be interesting to compare there too.
