There's already a gcc4 branch, but it's not seen any commits yet. It's
now become outdated with regard to trunk. I'll wait for gcc-4.0.1 to
come out (they're just ironing out the last couple of showstoppers),
then we'll re-cut the gcc4 branch. I don't think getting a gcc-4.x
version of a trunk-based book into a workable state will take too long.
Once it's ready on the branch, feel free to merge the stuff into
cross-lfs. I'll hold off merging to trunk until the BLFS project is
ready, as I mentioned when the original gcc4 branch was created.
If those of you who have already built systems with gcc-4.x could send
BLFS related patches to the BLFS guys, or make them otherwise visible to
the LFS project, I'd appreciate it. I don't want folks to have to trawl
the various distro lists/forums to dig the patches up.
