[csw-users] Outdated packages e.g. GCC 4.3 instead of 4.6 - reason? ; Suggestion new packages?

Progress update:

There are packages available for testing:


There are Solaris 9 and 10, sparc and i386, with 32-bit and 64-bit
targets and libraries. The compiler itself is 32-bit only (but it can
generate 64-bit binaries).

One big missing bit is the Ada frontend.

One large change is that gcc is now compiled into the /opt/csw prefix,
meaning that the binaries are in /opt/csw/bin.  Please don't install
these packages on any production machines, as anything in the
experimental directory might change.  There's no decision to move gcc
from /opt/csw/gcc4 to /opt/csw yet, I have built the packages as a
proof of concept, and something for users to try out and see whether
they like it.

What are your general feelings about having gcc in /opt/csw/bin
instead of /opt/csw/gcc4/bin?
