Hmm... I'm not sure why this would be the case. I have relocated my
libraries, and I have updated my specs file. Things work just fine for me
(or it seems). I wonder if you could elaborate your assertion with an
example. (I don't want to upset Chris Faylor - is this something we should
discuss off the mailing list?)

Based on the conversation we've been having, I no longer think this is a
general good idea either. I stated this is a previous email. I agree that
the right solution is to "correct" gcc.

The relocation that I have done merely serves as an interim solution for me.
