There is one strange thing though, twice I have managed to have some 
binaries in /bin (such as bzip2) linked to libgcc. A recompile of the 
concerned package fixed it.

I don't know why it happened and I am waiting for it to happen again to 
decipher the cause. It may be related to the 'gaseous anomalies' that 
appear occassionally in the gcc quadrant.
