Install the gcc3 port. When we get the new VFS stuff, switching
'default' compilers will be a breeze. I believe the ports system 
already has some gunk in there fo facilitate port compiles with 
the gcc 3 compiler. There is a knob for make.conf, IIRC.

The KDE situation is being worked on. On a related note, asmodai will
probably want to get the TenDRA compiler working with building kernels
and world, since he's the main TenDRA guy that frequents here :)

Also, I think TenDRA would be a better fit for DragonFly licensewise. A
BSD system with a BSD licensed compiler would be a very cool thing to
have, now wouldn't it?
