You gonna add to that patch a sure-fire way to backup and restore the
host's system headers in the event of catastrophe? If you did that, I
would agree whole heartedly. ;)

In all seriousness, though, if there is *absolutely* no other way to
make GCC-3.3 work on glibc < 2.3 then I would be more likely to use
gcc-3.2.x in chap5, then gcc-3.3 in chap6. This is a big pain, but
*MUCH* safer than cooking the host.
