Blah Terry, TOTALLY 110% INCORRECT.  The situation was the same as our
FreeBSD 3.x users that still post PR's against RELENG_3 and want us to
fix things.  Even where there was complete patches against 2.94.3
available; the issue for the GCC people was one of not willing to spend
the effort to re-test on all platforms.  Same reason we don't upgrade
RELENG_3 to the latest openssl (or any other lib) -- who knows what else
would break that depended on version that is there now.
