Well, what was the reasoning for having a separate gcc-core package again?
By default, both source and binary would be under the same name, and a knob
in setup would allow the user to install either one.
Without consulting the source (WCTS?) I'd guess it might be because there is
no gcc-core binary package. If there is no other reason for the split, it
might be best to remove gcc's external-source, and rename gcc-core-*-src to
