I noticed this on the FreeBSD site regarding the latest version of JAVA: January 24, 2007: Greg Lewis has released the fourth patchset (patchlevel 4, "Sumatran") for the JDK 1.5.0 software. This release builds with GCC 4 and includes a number of bug fixes.
FreeBSD-6.2 does not come with GCC 4 or newer. While it is relatively trivial to install it manually, it then is necessary to make changes to the system /etc/make.conf file to insure its use. Wouldn't it be more efficient for the FreeBSD team to integrate GCC 4.3 (I think that is the latest stable version) into the base system? From what I have read, this latest version has some major improvements over its predecessors. -- Gerard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
