that's not really true.  we've switched Gentoo to the GNU releases by default 
(while still making the HJL versions available).  mips tended to be screwed up 
in the non-GNU releases, and havent found any real pressing need to use the 
HJL versions in general.  plus, it's a lot easier to stabilize on a stable 
release than one made against the latest development tree.
