Re: /var/lib/alternatives/gcc missing for alternatives 1.3.30c

This is created when alternatives runs for gcc. If you're missing it, it suggests
to me that alternatives wasn't run. Check '/etc/postinstall/*" and
"/etc/postinstall/*". If there is no "done" suffix, these didn't run,
which is why you don't have the alternatives files you're looking for. If there
is a "done" suffix, these did run but apparently didn't do so successfully. Try
running them again by hand and see what errors, if any, pop up.
