I figured out exactly which line caused this problem too, he added "flags
S" to the rule that allowed outgoing traffic, causing only the syn to be
allowed through the firewall, but breaking several other things, and he
did it at around the same time as the gcc import. Anyway, lesson learned.
Thanks for help whoever gave it.
