That's a good idea.

That surly not necessary. We only have major version number change
if we change from Releng Majors 3->4, 4->5. This is just compat
stuff, and CURRENT is not yet production.

stlport breacks within openoffice in CURRENT, or seperatly build
as a port. I'll have to test if it breaks also with the newest
snapshot from ports.

I guess the latest is true. We have a newer snapshot in ports than
in CURRENT. It will be true if gcc31 in CURRENT can build it and
make a running version.

That's not possible. I'd get to many errors then. I've gcc31 specific
includes and they work fine.
