The full comments in the header file illustrate why the Mozilla teamed keyed off of the internal compiler revision. Basically, almost all ports-based compilers were thunked, and there was a short period of time in early 4.0 when a thunked system GCC was in the tree. Note, we are using the FreeBSD compiler revision, and not __FreeBSD_version in this header. Joe > > > > Please add a comment why you chose these __FreeBSD_cc_version > > > values.
