Sorry, I'm not going to allow the toolchain to get hacked up the week
before the release.  If this is a feature that you want for FreeBSD 6.2,
then please work with the architects of the FreeBSD/amd64 platform to
make it happen.  Saying at the very very last minute before a release
that a pet feature is a requirement for tier-1 only falls on deaf ears.
