am I the only one, wrt gcc44 -- it is failing and I can't build octave or much else

Here are partial listings of my config files.  Add these entries to your config files and see if that does the trick.  I can't be 100% sure that everything is required, but it is what I have, and it works.  Attached is the xorg.conf file I generated.  Place it in the directory /etc/X11/.  When you have done these things, make sure your user belongs to the group "wheel", then login.  To start X, give the command:
  startx
You should get 3 windows, one of them labeled "login" in the title bar.  If you type "exit" while inside this window, then return, that will end your X session.  You will have some "fatal error" messages in your console window when X finishes.

Also, make sure you have installed the nvidia drivers per my other postings.  You can check if you have the package installed by typing:
  pkg_info | grep nvidia
You should see at a minimum:
  nidia-driver-185.18.29 NVidia graphics card binary drivers for hardware OpenGL ren

You have to build this packages and install it.  This process is documented in the NetBSD documents and my other postings for installing FreeBSD on a Compaq Presario CQ60.


File /etc/rc.conf

linux_enable="YES"
moused_enable="YES"
keyrate="fast"
saver="star"
hald_enable="YES"
dbus_enable="YES"
vesa_load="YES"

File /boot/loader.conf

nvidia_load="YES"
