I guess I should've tested these, but I didn't expect it to replace a minor 
CONFLICTS problem that I had locally patched with a few lines, with a major 
not optional dependency on a retired compiler.

Is pyste going to be optional in a new revision or is there any chance gccxml 
can be patched so it builds cleanly with the current GCC?

If the Makefile comment is the only problem, surely it can be addressed?

# GCC-XML has some constructs that GCC 4.2 does not like. Namely,
# the use of casted-pointer-dereferences as an lvalue to post-increment
# operations.

Additionally the gccxml port seems pretty much dead. An attempt of revival has 
been done in 2007, but no release has ever been made.
