CVS isn't meant for "mass-usage". It's a scrap-board that will be molded
into a fully working stable book, etc. If you want something stable use
3.0-pre4. If you want to be brave and live on bleeding edge, use CVS at
own risc. But it won't contain instructions for both gcc's and glibc's
just to make it a bit more stable. that's not the idea behind using CVS.
