There are hundreds of ports in FreeBSD that ask for GCC 3.3 if not more 
recent, many of which work fine on FreeBSD 4.x. I hardly understand 
what you are complaining about. It's not like you could get a more 
recent compiler with one line or shell (thank you the ports tree). I am

configure line is way faster for you and every body else here

Plus you did not seem to mind dropping Win9x so that you could get your
