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.  ;)
