Well done, guys. Someone's trying to build CVS QEMU on gcc4, and you're flaming them. This'll really encourage people to work on making development versions of QEMU work with gcc4.

The point at which you start using profanity on a -devel list is the point at which you need to put the keyboard down and come back later.

Rick suggested removing that configure message that you need to
explicitely override its quite sane default to refuse work with gcc4,
because at least one platform (the most common one) has problems with it.

No, by the looks of it, he was refuting Ben's suggestion that it should:

Apparently, we should make configure fail horribly if gcc4 is found even

if disable-gcc-check is enabled.
Make configure fail horribly? Well, that seems a bit counter- productive,

don't you think?
