okay .. good enough for me .. let's fix that situation and if you can
lend a hand then I can get this stuff into svn.

I know when I'm wrong. It happens daily and I'm okay with being
"wrong". Certainly if it allows me to do something that is beneficial.

It will take some time to map out all the itty bitty bits into those
eight packages and then to see if it can all be built via the GAR
system with repeatability and ease.

non-sequiter : I'd like to get GCC 4.2.4 built also, see  :
