  Actually I think that questions like this are meant to go to the gcc-help
list rather than the main gcc list, no?

  Kanishk, the main gcc list deals with the internals of the compiler itself
and questions about how to modify or otherwise work on the compiler's own
source code.  For questions about how to /use/ the compiler, please send mail

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
