Aaarrgh!  You're right (as usual).  There's TWO sfw's!

Above, you said you built, from source, gcc, and got rid
of SFWgcc and all it's dependencies.

That I understand.

The "and I no longer have /opt/sfw." -- how did that dissappear?
Presumably not via "and all it's dependencies", but by
deliberate pkgrm of everything there, and then rm -r of /opt/sfw.

But why?  There's a HUGE amount of software in /opt/sfw?

I ask because I've gotten to know you well enough to know
that you always (it seems) have really good reasons for whatever
you do.


Suppose you hadn't deleted all of /opt/sfw/, except for the
gcc package there.

What sfw-stuff would you then have on your PATH and LDFLAGS?
Both of them -- every /usr/sfw/... would perhaps be paired with
a /opt/sfw/...?
