yes (and the build took about 5 times as long and produced a tree twice as
big).  Since their favored design approach for the makefiles is "rat's nest",
a "make -n" only gives a small clue whether it'll adhere to the --prefix
option.  So I bailed out of that one (will revisit of course).

I saw the webpage (didn't get to it yesterday due to day-job schedule,
but can probably start on it today).

I should be able to build that (or 3.4.1).  Building gcc has gotten fairly
routine (perhaps the 4.0 stuff will change that).
