That wasn't what I suggested.

Nope. Not what I meant as well.
Current dfports compiles as freebsd-4.8, GCC 2.95.x is configured for the
FreeBSD fall back. GCC 3.x is not, we need to move forward into using our
own uname for compiling ports if you want to rip out gcc 2.95.x like you
said in your plans on the 1.2 release page.
