  Ah, thanks for pointing this out.  (The packages are of course broken as far
as portability is concerned, as upstream GCC does not anywhere provide a 'cc'
executable; it's presence in the gcc-3 package is caused by the build script
creating a symlink as a convenience, so it's wrong in general to assume that
there "must be" an executable called 'cc' in the PATH.)  I'll add it back into
the next release.
