The very first thing I obtained from sunsite before trying to install the
binary distribution of gcc was the release file. It is monumentally
uninformative with regard to what appear to be special installation problems
particular to the binary distribution. I installed the gcc 2.7.2
binaries over an earlier version of gcc with no particular problems. The binary version, however, I have yet to make work, in spite of
following directions and doing everything everyone has suggested from this

Is it possible that the mit binary version of gcc differs from the
sunsite version?
