I'll take the silence as positive feelings.

I've updated the package in experimental to the Debian style naming
with the version in the suffix, e.g. gcc-4.6.  Alternatives are used
to symlink from /opt/csw/bin/gcc to /opt/csw/bin/gcc-4.6.

The newly built packages have passed the smoke test.  If you wish to
test the packages, here's how:

1. Make sure you're subscribed to the opencsw-future catalog (via
2. Run pkgutil with the -t flag to install gcc.


pkgutil -t http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/opencsw/experimental/gcc4 \
-y -i gcc4core

I highly recommend testing them, it's better to catch potential issues
now rather than later.
