I don't think it is. Gcc-4 is Cygwin 1.7's system compiler, so there's
nothing wrong with (parts of) the ocaml package depending on it.

But I guess the ability to switch the default compiler back to gcc-3
should come with a health warning: it may break stuff. Time to get rid
of the gcc alternatives setup perhaps, and require users to specify
gcc-3 explicitly if they still want it?
