No one is getting -current@ since 'midnight' today (whatever timezone the mailserver 
uses ;) which is where I originally posted this same msg.  About half the lists are 
down including CTM-via-email (FTP is current & okay there).  Simon Nielson from -www@ 
says the postmaster has been notified.  -questions@ is working, fornunately.

I'd seen another user ask about using the gcc ports, so I thought I'd take a plunge 
and report back.

I think I mentioned some time back that the port net/tn3270 I'm suppose to be working 
on needs to track 5-Current because it relies on copying the /src/contrib/telnet tree. 
 And mentioned I'm trying to beat the deprecated functions, too, by making sure we can 
use the next planned release gcc3.3.4, even.  Well, we cannot use 'em as I've said, 
just too many things need work.

Yeah, I know.  But 'til someone finds time to help, I can't do it alone, _way_ too 
many problems.

Nutshell:  I've gone back to using the system gcc.  Now we're not able compile 
libstdc++ and other related pieces; the headers _are_ there as mentioned in the 
earlier msg.  Just about every other thing under world _does_ compile & link properly 
-- it is just the libstdc-type stuff.  We should be running an installworld made from 
April 8's bzip2all from current.freebsd.org, and fresh srcs from the CTM deltas up to 
this morning.  I don't know what else to check on, I'm needing another pair of eyes.
