I tried some months ago, but gcc40 (or 41 or whatever) wasn't
building on -current and I didn't have much time to devote to

That's good to know.  Does it also work with lang/gcc42?

You might want to have it try to first detect if lang/gnat
is installed and use that to bootstrap.  You probably don't
want to depend on lang/gnat just to get a bootstrap compiler
if my gnat-3.15p-boot works with gcc4x, though.

What are the licenses with the gnat libs in gcc4x?  Are
they as restrictive as lang/gnat?
