Hi all, One of my machines is running FreeBSD 4.11. It's a bit confused about its current incarnation of gcc:
[sh...@agaliarept lang]$ pkg_info | grep gcc gcc-3.4.6_3,1 GNU Compiler Collection 3.4 [sh...@agaliarept lang]$ gcc -v Using builtin specs. gcc version 2.95.4 20020320 [FreeBSD] Another of my machines, which runs FreeBSD 6.4, has gcc 3.4.6: [sh...@falwell shaun]$ pkg_info | grep gcc [sh...@falwell shaun]$ gcc -v Using built-in specs. Configured with: FreeBSD/i386 system compiler Thread model: posix gcc version 3.4.6 [FreeBSD] 20060305 Is it safe to install one of the newer gcc ports on FreeBSD 4.11? I've had this machine for three years; I don't recall ever upgrading the compiler, although pkg_info seems to think that I did, or at least attempted to. I'm wondering if there are any risks involved in going from gcc 2.95 to, say, 3.4.6. Typically I'm happy to pull the latest stable of just about anything, but the compiler is a different story.
