For what it's worth, I will continue to use my i386-unknown-freebsd4.7
system, which has GCC 2.95.4 with stabs as my primary development
machine for the foreseeable future.  This GCC 2.95.4 is the default
compiler on FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE which, to be honest, I've patched to
fix a debug info generation problem caused by the FreeBSD-specific
