lol, you mean I've been fretting over nothing?

Now I feel almost as stupid as I look ;-)

spadge at tobermory$ gcc34 -v
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc/i386-portbld-freebsd5.3/3.4.4/specs
Configured with: ./..//gcc-3.4-20050415/configure --disable-nls
--with-system-zlib --with-libiconv-prefix=/usr/local --program-suffix=34

--disable-shared --prefix=/usr/local i386-portbld-freebsd5.3
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.4.4 20050415 (prerelease) [FreeBSD]

Which matches up to:

spadge at tobermory$ where gcc
gcc-3.4.4_20050415 is in lang/gcc34

Thanks all.
