Interesting. Someone once suggested that the sanity check at the glibc
lockin stage should be changed from:

gcc dummy.c


cc dummy.c

so that folks who forget the symlink will get caught earlier. After your
experience I'd say it's probably not a bad idea. I think I'll stick this in
the book. Cross posted to -dev so folks know what's going on.
