Ports don't overwrite the base system. The system gcc is installed in /usr/bin, any port-installed gcc will end up somewhere in /usr/local. I expected to see them in /usr/local/bin, but the gcc-OOo port (for example) ends up in /usr/local/gcc-ooo To get it used, you'll need to tell make which one to use. I believe the magic incantation is to acc "CC=/usr/local/bin/gcc33" to /etc/make.conf, but I'm not positive. A google search should find the correct way to accomplish that, however. -- Bill Moran We meddle. People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think. Don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right.
